"I just wanted to express my sincerest thanks for allowing me to participate in the Mini-Medical School Program over Spring Break. This program solidified my decision to pursue a career in the medical field, and I could not be more grateful for the experiences and opportunities it provided. I am definitely looking forward to my future and who knows, maybe one day I will be a Drexel medical school student!
I've just started a post-baccalaureate at the University of Miami and am a year away from starting the application process. I also, perhaps unsurprisingly, have been thinking nonstop about becoming a surgeon. I want to thank you again for giving me the experience that has done the most to finalize my decision to enter medicine."

About Mini-Med Spring Break
During Mini-Med Spring Break, the day starts early. You will accompany the teaching team and third- and fourth-year medical students on hospital rounds and be part of discussions between physician, patient and medical student. Throughout the five-day program, you will also see patients in clinical practice, attend department lectures or go into the operating room. You will have the opportunity to talk with third- and fourth-year medical students about their experiences preparing for medical school, what their first two years were like and what it's like now that they are out of the classroom and in the hospital.
