York Prep High School Senior Hannah Sher is setting her sights on becoming a pediatrician someday.
The New York City-based high school senior got a head start on her medical studies in the University of Vermont's Summer Academy program, a four-week virtual program for students who want to explore areas of study and earn transferable college credit. The program is for high school students who have completed 10th, 11th, or 12th grade.
In this episode of the Pre-College Experience, Sher shares her experience in completing UVM’s Health & Medicine course, a high school summer college course that helps students explore the world of modern medicine and bioscience through the lens of COVID-19 in online labs, lectures, demonstrations, and virtual visits.
