Class of 2017
UMHB and the Biology department mean so much to me and I hope to make both proud as I go out on my own! I'll be attending Edward Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine at their Auburn Campus. This DO school originated in Virginia, but Auburn is its third branch (they have another in South Carolina as well). They have a strong focus on rural practices and medical missions which is two aspects I'd love to one day be involved with.

I am working at UT Southwestern in their Center for Mineral Metabolism and Clinical Research on a study of α-Klotho and chronic kidney disease. I work under Dr. Hu, who is one the leading researchers in α-Klotho. Working in the Cell Biology lab prepared me for this job well. Because I already had learned so much background information and mastered so many basic lab skills, I could just focus on learning how to run immunohistochemistry here. It's exciting research, and I really do like working here!

As I begin the second year of my journey to earn a DDS at the UT School of Dentistry at Houston, I can't help but feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the biology department at UMHB. When I say I couldn't have done it without them, I mean it. The UMHB biology department not only provided knowledge but, with the labs and research presentations, they helped to refine my time management and critical thinking skills, both of which are essential in dental school. I couldn't dream of a more compassionate, encouraging group of professors.
Class of 2013
During many hours of researching undergraduate biology programs, the quality and character of UMHB's curriculum stood above the rest. My expectations were surpassed as I participated in the program! The mentorship, interview practice, and research opportunities provided through the biology faculty enabled me to be well-prepared for PA school. When it came time to apply, I was overwhelmed by the positive response from all of the schools I applied to. I owe so much to UMHB for their dedication to student success and development.
Class of 2011
I want to thank all of the biology staff for preparing me so well for graduate school. After talking to other students, many of them feel their undergrad education did not prepare them well. I have all of my syllabi, and nothing coming up has blindsided me, thanks to being part of the UMHB biology department. Thank you for building such a wonderful, comprehensive program that prepared me to excel in graduate school.
Class of 2011
I wanted to let you know that I got accepted to the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) here in Fort Worth. I want to thank you for all your support and time you took to write me recommendation letters. You have always inspired me to be a better person and scholar, and this I have in my heart.

Class of 2009
The Biology Department was essential in preparing me for medical school. I felt as prepared, if not more prepared, then most of my classmates from Ivy League schools and other colleges around the country. By having the unique experience of being able to work one-on-one with the faculty at UMHB, I was able to design research projects with them and learn the process from the ground up. This skill helped me publish many research papers during medical school and is still helping me with my current projects. UMHB set me up to succeed in medical school, which in turn helped me reach my goal of becoming an Orthopaedic Surgeon.
