This invaluable experience allows PREP students to interact with established DGSOM Staff, Faculty, and Students who will give them more insight on Medical school admissions process as well as on student life and medical school curriculum. Students will project themselves into a variety of roles and will make more realistic self-evaluations of their own motivation and intentions surrounding their career choice. In addition, mentorship relationships will be developed from these experiences.
