MEET JUSTIN OWUMI
Mr. Owumi, a 2009 participant of MEDscience, is now a clinical research assistant at Boston Children's Hospital.
He graduated from Colby College in 2014 with a major in biochemistry and a minor in education.
He believes MEDscience is the opportunity that allowed him to truly believe that one day he can become a doctor. He is currently applying to medical school and we are excited for the next steps in his bright future!
We wanted to share this wonderful video Dexter Southfield made of their experiences throughout the semester with HMS MEDscience Spring 2015.
It has already received over 7,200 hits and counting!
We think it captures our mission and we have really enjoyed our time with these students!
