"M.O.O.N. offers so much more than other healthcare observation programs. It is a truly impressive experience all students should participate in before going into med school. I was able to witness many surgeries, complete rounds with doctors of various professions and truly come to understand the daily life of a healthcare worker. I was eager to arrive and see what adventures awaited me that day. I felt like part of the St. Elizabeth family during the length of the program!"
