Weill Cornell is unique in how focused it is on medical science research. There is no other institution where I can so easily find professors to collaborate with for clinical research. In the short time I have spent in the program, I have meaningfully contributed to several projects that will be published.

At Weill Cornell, I learned how to take difficult scientific concepts and distill them into elements that various audiences can understand. I was also able to hone my presentation and explanation skills throughout my years there, which help me greatly in my everyday work.

Sam Globus, PhD

WCGS provided me with an amazing scientific foundation, both in the core classes and through my work in the lab. It taught me how to approach a scientific problem by boiling it down to its core components and focusing on confronting the specific issue at hand.
