An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “Beginning my freshman year, I started working with my Pre-med advisor; she really helped me and even paired me with a Seton Hall alumni mentor, an orthopedic oncological surgeon at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. I got to observe him during 30 surgeries and assist him with several research projects. This, combined with my on-campus research with Dr. Muldow on stress hormones—as well as my two summer research positions at Columbia University Medical Center working on diabetes research—truly taught me to apply what I was studying in the classroom and helped me get into medical school.”

    • Richard Greendyk
      Biology, Pre-med, Chemistry and Spanish minors
  • “I loved every minute of the Seton Hall program. I was in five different clinical settings, getting a firsthand look at the kind of career I wanted to pursue. I feel extremely confident in my abilities to help athletes achieve their very best.”
