The Innovations in Health Professions pre-college program through Northeastern University provided great preparation and understanding into the field of medicine and its requirements. I appreciated the diversity of students and staff within the program as well as the on-campus experience. Through learning how to suture, how to perform an ultrasound, and by participating in a protein lab, I left the program with a strong desire to continue my studies in the field of medicine with the hopes of one day becoming a Physician Assistant.Isabella C.
