"I cannot express in words how grateful I am for being part of the CDU/UCLA team. This summer I had one of the most amazing experiences of my life. More than an academic challenge, it was also a personal challenge. Being away from home, family, learning more about medicine, fighting against health disparities, meeting new people, all of this changed me a lot. I can say now that I am a different Beatriz from the one three months ago. But, I can assure you, I am definitely a better one. Thank you for making this possible."

"I received my first med school interview at The University of Florida, College of medicine. And I’m positive that the UCRTP 2018 experience, helped me illustrate my passion for biomedical science / medicine, and I truly want to thank the UCRTP Staff/Program coordinators for the tremendous support provided throughout this process!"
