“Within 8 weeks, a group of undergraduates were given numerous once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that have shaped us into greater clinicians, but more importantly greater individuals."
- Anna Bowie, 2017

“I learned more from the Ruesch Center this summer than I ever could have expected. It deepened my desire to attend medical school and taught me so much about patient interactions, patient expectations and much more.”
Alyssa Damon, 2017
