"After attending the Medical and Sports Sciences program I was accepted at the University of New Hampshire with 11
college credits towards my major in Kinesiology. The Anatomy and Physiology and clinical work experience components of the curriculum gave me a broad understanding of the medical field. With Betsy's and Wendy’s encouragement and support, I am able to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a doctor. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in learning more about the medical profession”
