What our students have to say...
Coming to UVM I knew that is would get a strong, well-rounded education, but the Microbiology and Molecular Genetics program goes far beyond that. I was given an incredibly strong foundation to work and expand from. Through my courses I learned and practiced crucial skills and ideas that would make me a strong addition to any research position. I also had a lot of opportunity to explore and hone unique interests and skills through the freedom the curriculum offers. Responsible for the caliber of academics in this department are the amazing, world-class faculty you get to work with. My professors all took the time to make connections with students and get to know us. They were actively engaged in helping us gain crucial experience and education that would enable us to succeed. My next step is medical school, and I definitely feel like I have a leg up on applicants, because of all the medically relevant experiential learning that I was able to partake it.
