NYLF Medicine Reviews: Student Testimonials

Desiree L.
Alumna of NYLF Explore STEM and NYLF Medicine

What was the most memorable moment of your program experience?

I saw a live broadcast of a knee replacement surgery. And because the surgery happened live, we were able to tweet our questions and have them answered by the doctors on the spot!

How was attending the program different than learning in a traditional classroom?

The program provided a hands-on experience. For instance at NYLF Medicine, I was able to learn and practice different medical techniques that I normally would not have been able to do at school.

How has your program experience helped you focus on a career path?

My professional aspiration is to become a doctor and travel the world, providing health care to less fortunate people worldwide. My program experience assured me that I definitely want to pursue a career in the field of medicine. It helped me explore the whole field and narrow down the specific branch of medicine that I want to pursue to anesthesiology.
