Reviews from former students:
“This program has allowed me to explore not only research, but also the specialty of neonatology at a deeper level. The opportunity to become the expert on a particular area of neonatal research is invaluable to me. I have learned extensively about topics I did not even know existed and contributed to the research that furthers them. “ – Class of 2018
“I loved being able to meet and work with physicians and researchers, and I learned so many new things through research and asking questions. I am also very grateful for this program because my mentor asked me to stay and work during the fall semester as well, so I am excited that I get to continue seeing our project through.” – Class of 2018
“It was a dream come true to be there. I loved the program and would recommend it to others. To meet the people that I did, shadow the doctors that I did, and do the research that I did made it a truly priceless experience.” – Class of 2017
“Before entering this program I didn’t really know which career path I wanted to pursue, but the experiences I have had and the people I met at the Brigham have inspired me to pursue a career in healthcare.” – Class of 2016
