Alumni Testimonials

Rachael Holp

“The last 12 months have been the most impactful 12 months of my life. I have learned a lot through school and life so far, and I am incredibly grateful for many of the experiences I have had that have pushed me to be the best version of myself, even if it has been incredibly uncomfortable and challenging. I would not change or take away those experiences for anything.”

“Joining this program has been like becoming a part of a welcoming and nurturing family, and I wholeheartedly encourage aspiring students to consider the value that comes with participating in such a groundbreaking and transformative field. This program has been an incredible opportunity that I highly recommend to anyone looking to further their academic and professional aspirations.”

Mario Giovacchini

“I remember the first time a PI asked me if I knew how to do a particular kind of data analysis and I could answer, “Yes! They taught me how to do this exact thing in class!” I continue to build on the foundational concepts I learned in this program and still refer back to my notes, presentations, and textbooks today. Doing research is such an important part of building a good CV for residency applications and beyond, and more importantly, I now have the skills I need to be able to formulate my own research questions and to begin finding out the answers.”
