The DOT program was a huge milestone in my journey of becoming a future physician. It reaffirmed my confidence and capabilities regardless of my socioeconomic status or skin color. And the faculty and guest speakers were extremely insightful. I am forever thankful to have been selected for the DOT program, and I hope to be a part of the College of Medicine in the near future!
