“When I’m faced with a new challenge I remind myself who I am and who I am going to be; at which point the challenge becomes nothing more than preparation.”BGE Student Profiles
Biomedical Graduate Education students learn from one another as well as from our faculty. Students bring perspectives from different countries, cultural backgrounds and careers to their graduate studies, fueling productive collaborations and innovations.
Many of our students receive scholarships and other funding — from BGE, Georgetown and outside organizations — to support their work.
“My life motto is, ‘Al mal tiempo, buena cara.’ It’s an old Spanish saying that translates to presenting a good disposition in the face of adversity.”
“Health care workers could not provide the best possible and accessible health care to all communities without a proper understanding and interest in underprivileged and underrepresented minority issues.”
“I realize that a lot of the advice [my thesis mentor] has given for experiments or in analyzing data and results can be applied to things that can happen outside of the lab.”
We invite our students to share their experiences with the BGE community! Fill out one of our surveys to be featured on the website.
