NSU Experience

The biology program at NSU prepared me for the intensity of the course material and volume of the course load at NSUCOM. Initially, I choose to go to Nova because the student to professor ratio was small in comparison to other private universities in florida. I knew that I would learn best in an environment with smaller class sizes. Additionally, all of my professors at NSU had an open door policy which allowed me to ask questions outside of classroom hours. During that time I developed good relationships with my professors and most of them became my mentors and friends. This allowed me to work on my interpersonal skills so that I was able to cultivate similar relationships later on with my professors in medical school and residency training. Healthy professional relationships and networking is vital in any field, especially for success in business and in medicine. I started my career at NSU and am grateful for the education, friendships and mentors I have made along the way.
