Student & Graduate Reviews

"Overall I recommend the Graduate Certificate Program for any students applying to medical school throughout a transition year. It emulates FIU HWCOM's first year medical school curriculum and prepares students for the rigors of medical school. The courses are taught by medical school faculty and at the level of medical school exams. We even took the NBME subject exams that medical students across the nation take, and in some cases the average of our class was higher than the national average. Apart from the rigorous academic criteria, we learn invaluable professionalism aspects that help us in interviews and in professional life. The professionalism classes helped in understanding ethical aspects of medicine as well as differences in insurance and health systems. This program is great for a transition/preparation year, but it should be noted that this program is extremely challenging; this is absolutely nothing like undergraduate classes. I recommend whoever enters this program apply to other medical schools and not have all of their eggs in one basket since medical school admissions is competitive. Overall, this program is great in preparing you for medical school and I highly recommend it!"

"I attended Florida International University as a Biology major. At FIU, there are so many opportunities being sent to you as a student. I have gotten so much information regarding internships I could apply to, jobs, shadowing, and research. I was even approached by a TA and asked to join a research group (although this doesn't happen often; you normally have to apply). You have so many opportunities to bulk up your resume as a student here, and the advisers are always willing to help or give you advice. Also I feel like I've gotten a great, well-rounded education here and feel pretty confidant going into graduate school."

"FIU is a wonderful place to get an education. It emphasizes global learning and being a citizen of the world. It's the best place to be during an era of such globalization."
