“Our most successful students are eager to learn in a challenging environment that prioritizes patient care.” Dr. Glassman, Board Certified Dermatologist

“I have 17 years’ experience running a highly successful MA bridge-year program in the Washington, DC area that has placed more than 85 percent of our students in medical schools.

Now, we’ve expanded this program across the nation’s largest dermatology network of practices, and are represented by undergraduate universities nationwide.

Students quickly discover that the knowledge, expertise, and relationships they develop during this year will help them become tomorrow’s leaders who will change lives for the better and shape the future of medicine.

Our most successful students are eager to learn in a challenging environment that prioritizes patient care. If you feel you have what it takes to exceed expectations, we hope you’ll join our program.”
