Shannon Cramm, M.D. Candidate, Class of 2016

"As a pre-clinical student with a strong interest in pursing a career in academic surgery, I am very grateful for the wealth of opportunities the ASDP has afforded me to further explore various surgical sub-specialties, play an active role in research, and even begin learning hands on skills in the simulation center. I look forward to continuing to build my knowledge and experience during my clinical years, so I can become an impactful teacher, scientist and surgeon"

More from our students about their experiences with SCRUBS - ASDP:

"Extremely great experience to see and be able to try the different techniques a student would be learning! Has confirmed my excitement to begin medical school!"

"It exposed me to the possibilities under surgery. I did not think surgery included work in public health or medical education but the meeting with some of the doctors opened that possibility to me."

"Opened my eyes to the many different professions within surgery and also taught me, too, that not every person follows the same traditional track to work in medicine."
