"The B/MD program was a great asset in my journey through medical education. The program allowed me to focus on education and personal growth without the worry and distraction regarding medical school acceptance. I also appreciated the comradery with fellow B/MD recipients throughout undergrad studies and medical school. I loved my time spent at USI. I had great experiences learning with my peers both in classroom and out. Faculty were passionate and challenging, which prepared me well to transition into medical school and beyond. "

"The USI Pre-medicine program provided me with the perfect environment to grow and realize my potential. The program’s low student-to-faculty ratio allowed me to be an active participant in class discussions, which created a more enjoyable learning environment that fostered greater comprehension. The courses in the program are designed to continually readdress important topics—seeing important material multiple times helped me solidify my understanding. In addition, my professors were always available and willing to address any confusion that I had about the material. My experience at USI deepened my love for biochemistry and prepared me exceptionally well for medical school. I could not have picked a better undergraduate institution than USI!"
