You have a future in the field of Medicine!

Until the pandemic is over, all of our programs have been adapted into a blended version: all lectures are streamed online to your home followed by in person meetings in small pods and 2-3 Teaching Assistants in a large room.  Students will be screened for signs of COVID, required to wear masks at all times, and sanitize their  hands. Most importantly, all students will be physically distant at all times. Students will  experience  all of the procedures we normally teach in our programs.

The application for our Summer Mini Medical Experience Program is now posted online.  Click here to apply or  E-mail questions to Dr Rubin at

Thank you for speaking with me over the phone yesterday to help me prepare for my MD/PhD interviews. Your advice and the practice interview questions helped me a lot in my preparation. Thank you again for all of your help! I deeply appreciate your support over the last 10 years.
