Student Quote:

“My biggest takeaway from the program is all of the things I have learned from the diverse people here. I have learned other languages, cultures, etc. It’s incredible to me how well known Yale is and that it attracts all these people.” Julia (Medicine & Healthcare)

Highlights:

  • Medicine Track – Yale New Haven Hospital
    • The medicine students had the opportunity to spend quality time inside the YNHH Emergency Department.
    • The Emergency Department has a full range of specialists and equipment available 24 hours a day as well as educational, preventive and outreach programs designed to understand, treat and prevent the most serious of patient injuries.
  • Business & Entrepreneurship Track – Guest Speaker from McKinsey
    • Peter Mombaur provided a deep dive into management consulting at McKinsey. From the Gates Foundation to the government of South Africa, all types of companies hire McKinsey to help solve their business problems.
