“After attending just one Models of Human Disease workshop at the University of Toronto back in 2012, I was astonished at the determination and passion Dr. Lorelei and Dr. Rosalind Silverman had for helping those interested in pursuing medicine as a career. As I attended more and more workshops, I noticed whether there were high school students, undergraduates, graduates, or foreign medical graduates, Drs. Silverman knew the exact step by step strategies required to ensure a successful path for every individual. From course selection, resume building, personal statement development and all the way to interview day preparation, the consulting service is truly outstanding! After hearing about the opening of the premed program, I attended the open house and was immediately interested in applying for the program. The MCAT and USMLE focused curriculum were exactly what I needed as a premed! The program not only prepared me academically for medical school, but also allowed me to engage in many extracurricular activities that have helped develop my leadership skills. In addition, the program provided me the opportunity to get involved with with two teaching positions. After completing the accelerated track and being the recipient of the President’s Award, I was admitted to St. George’s University School of Medicine. Without a doubt, the one on one academic support and continuous guidance of Drs. Silverman were a major factor on my success. I would recommend this program and the consulting services of Drs. Silverman to any ambitious individual looking to pursue medicine.”
“Thank you so much for all of your help – without you I would have never dreamed of being able to pursue this dream. I will always be grateful for helping me through this process. It means the world to me!”

"I used to attend your Free Medical school workshop at UofT about 2 years ago, or so. Your tips on writing personal statements, and the talks with admission directors of various foreign universities, as well as with people who gained admission into medical school has been extremely helpful. I have since been admitted to Ross University School of Medicine, and I am getting ready to write my USMLE Step 1 before the end of the year. Your program was instrumental in motivating and and helping me with my application process and I would like to continue being involved with any upcoming programs that you might have."
"Congratulations on the Pre medical program!!! I wish it was around when I was trying to get into medical school. I also noticed that you had a course “From IMG to Employment” and I was wondering if I could get more information on that. I will soon be an IMG so I am sure it will be beneficial. Also, I remember you both mentioning the importance of research and the possibility of getting some with Models of Human Disease and I was really hoping this is still being offered. Once again, thank you for your constant commitment to helping aspiring and future physicians into the field of medicine. I am even more happy that the passion has been extended to other fields like Law and Dentistry. Please keep up the good work. We are truly grateful. Onyeka O."

Without the valuable experiences and mentorship you offered me through the Science Engagement program from UTSC in 2011, it would not have set the foundation for where I have come today. So therefore, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your support, and the impact you both have had on me years later. Best Regards,” Amanda Brijmohan
“Your spontaneous disposition and brilliant insights on this whole process are so valuable to all. I’m learning so much & truly enjoy listening to you as a speaker…you give from the heart. I was impressed with Ross and St. George’s U. If my son is accepted by Royal Crown Academy, would he be interviewed by these affiliated medical schools? I like the idea of third & fourth year return to Canada, as Mr. Harkness mentioned may be a possibility in the future. Perhaps this new program you & your sister are navigating will act as a catalyst. Sincerely, Rita
