“PHAP indeed helps with the tangible things like GPA and apps, but what I love most is its ability to make students believe that their dreams are still attainable - and that’s largely achieved through their faculty, staff, & students. PHAP taught me to believe again in my capacity as a student, leader, & future physician.”
