“The opportunity I have to receive medical training from a world-class institution is due in no small part to UVa-Wise. My professors were extremely helpful during my four years there and throughout my applying to medical school. And now that I’m two months into my first semester of medical school, I realize just how well UVa-Wise prepared me.”
