Testimonials from SHPEP Program Participants



Kirolos Georges (SHPEP 2018)


I chose to apply to SHPEP because I wanted to gain medical experience and have an opportunity to attend classes in a medical school that would help me build good habits and help me in applying to medical school. However, I received so much more out of the program than just that. I had the opportunity to meet several medical school professors and was able to shadow them to experience medicine from an academia point of view. These professors helped mentor us and gave us valuable advice that will go a long way in the difficult track of being a pre-health student. Also, our Teaching Assistants were some of the most amazing people I have ever met. Although they are in medical school, they spoke and interacted with us as if we were their peers. One month after the program, and I am still in communication with the TAs and they continue to mentor me.


Monique Ferrell (SHPEP 2018)

My experience at Rutgers is something that I hold very close to me, and I cannot express how grateful I am to have even been accepted into the program. If it weren't for SHPEP, I would not have been able to gain the knowledge and experience that I was eligible to receive, and I want to thank you for that. I find myself talking about New Jersey, Rutgers, and the lifelong friendships I have made nearly every day.


Justin Nwosu (SHPEP 2018)

I just wanted to extend my sincerest gratitude for everything you’ve done for me throughout the program. SHPEP has allowed for me to grow professionally and provided an environment where I can fully grow into myself and nurture my new-found self. I can’t thank you enough for granting me this amazing opportunity and I would like to let you know that I do not take it lightly whatsoever.
