Here’s what our participants of Future Doctors Program have got to say:
“Since I am just starting high school, the information we learned will benefit my upcoming science classes, like genetics and organic chemistry. I can now use the new knowledge I learned from my instructors about applying to universities, doing extracurricular courses, and being myself and working hard through my high school years to become successful. If I had to summarise the experience in one word, it would be ‘Informative.” – Hanna Noori, United States of America
“The Future Doctors Program is a unique program that helped me choose my career path in Medicine, and also to develop research skills as a group using different sources of information, and to be able to filter what’s important. Being freshmen at Harvard, the teachers had a lot of energy and kept me engaged along with the sessions. If I had to describe my experience in one word, it would be ‘Eye-Opening.” – Luisa Miles, Uruguay
