Medical students face long hours of study and plenty of sleepless nights, but two alumni recall an education that prepared them well and recently established a fundin honor of their experience as medical students.
In June, we welcomed 50 scientists to the medical campus to officially launch their landmark studyaimed at diagnosing CTE during life. Led by BU's Robert Stern, this seven-year, $16 million funded study will build on the groundbreaking work of MED Professor Ann McKee.
A year of intensive study and internships in the BioScience Academyrecently graduated 15 into a new career field. This grant-funded program is designed to specifically help unemployed or underemployed individuals with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and/or Math) or health care background enter the biotech/life sciences field.
The Class of 2019 completed their first year of medical school by honoring their anatomy donors, their "teachers" who gave them the invaluable rite of passage. This is a special milestone for many students who consider this their first patient. Hear why this is so special to students and family members.
Great things continue to happen at your alma mater. I hope you celebrate your BUSM education and enjoy hearing about BUSM.
