The relationships I have made along the way have been the most beneficial to me. I have been able to connect with physicians, medical school administration and current medical students, who have all shared advice on how to become a well-rounded physician.

How was JAMP helped you strive to achieve your goal of becoming a doctor?

JAMP provided me with valuable MCAT prep, summer internships at medical schools and support throughout this whole journey. The MCAT prep provided guidance and organization for my MCAT studying. The summer internships were full of unique experiences that provide insight on how to become a successful medical school student. Also, JAMP provided me with comfort and confidence during application and interview season because I knew I had a program that believed in me pursuing my goal. 

 

What advice would you like to offer current or future JAMP students?

My advice would be to take advantage of the resources and opportunities that JAMP provides. Most of all, continue to study hard, enjoy the experiences during internships and lean on the friends you make along the way to help you get through this time!
