2022 HSHCP Participant Testimonials

"The UMass Chan Medical High School Health Careers Program offered participants the opportunity to interact with physicians, professors, and other healthcare workers to expand their knowledge on the broad field of medicine. The curriculum was designed to push participants to improve their academic study and work on building our skill set in preparation for college."

"The purpose of this program is to help grow our knowledge about the healthcare field and also prepare us for the rigorous journey ahead."

"I really enjoyed this program, and I have learned so much about the human body and the medical field, that I have never known before. I got to conduct fun experiments and meet kids like me. It was a privilege to have this opportunity."

"Thank you for this amazing experience, if I could do this again I would. I made friends and learned things as well as finding new passions. It was amazing overall."

"I enjoyed this program immensely and I am so grateful to have been given this opportunity to be a part of this program. I have learned a lot and became more motivated to persevere through schooling and testing to become a doctor. My peers, instructors and everyone overall have been great to talk to and work with. I've felt very supported and appreciated in this program."
