    I participated in a summer program at Weill Cornell a few summers ago. Though the program was not Travelers, I had friends from that program and went to one of their seminars for fun. The Travelers program seemed to be very clinically oriented, providing seminars on different specialties and ongoing research projects at the medical school. The seminar that I attended was based on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and its effect on clinical studies. The Travelers fellows also had many shadowing and/or clinical research experiences. You can expect to be right in the midst of an outstanding academic community with Cornell, Rockefeller University, and Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center all within a few blocks of each other. You can also expect to meet a lot of great people not only from Travelers, but from other summer programs going on in the Tri-I area. I hope that you have a fun summer there! You'll be staying in a really great area of an AMAZING city! :thumbup:

    you can try facebook messaging some of the members in the facebook group. thats what i did for my summer programs. it was really helpful getting an inside look from different people's perspectives (though i guess it would be more helpful if you were choosing between programs like i was).
