A fellow EMT and premed I work with mentioned something about participating in a summer program at a medical school- and mentioned most MS's have a program. He basically said that it involved several weeks of research with faculty of the medical school, and really helps your chances of going to that specific school. So, is there any merit to what he says? What are the specifics of these programs (as I can't find any info online)? Anyone here who has participated in one of these as a premed and comments? Thanks.
