My graduate program embraces the idea of everyone surviving together. This makes medical school bearable. Knowing my classmates and professors want the best for me and will help me in a time of need makes the competitive nature of medical school less daunting.

Meharry provides and extremely supportive environment which is extremely beneficial to your success. There are countless numbers of resources and faculty support that is easily accessible. One con is the technology on campus could stand to be more efficient. The internet and network are often down and needing repair.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

Meharry Medical College is a wonderful institution with a great deal of history, and produces some of the best doctors, dentists, scientists and health care professionals in the country. The public health program at this institution is wonderful because it allows the student to be exposed to the multifaceted nature of this field. Public health is a broad area of study and this program allows for a bit of flexibility allowing the student to find his/her niche. The college is located in the heart of a community that needs public health servants. It is a community of the underserved. This program could use some more assistance with advances in technology, but as with many private schools, luxuries such as these often have to wait for room in the budget.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Meharry Medical College Masters of Science in Public Health is a unique program for the students. It encompasses an educational aspect the focuses on the health disparities faced by the people of the United States, but particularly the minorities within the country. In addition to the area of focus, the professors are helpful, kind, and insightful, due to the quality and experience each faculty member contains. From the technology center to the teachers, the employees care about the well being of their students. Additionally, the small class room sizes offers a nurturing learning environment. I went to a large public university, and did not have the benefit of small classrooms. Experiencing this opportunity which I missed in my undergraduate years has been beneficial thus far. The unique program, helpful professors, and small classrooms are undoubtedly the major benefits of the school, however, some areas are present which could use improvement. Meharry is a private historically black college, so the lack of funding or support which may occur at the school is understandable. For instance, a center where students congregate to complete assignments, go to class, and enjoy lunch is often burdened by the technology of this particular building. The wireless is a daily fight and computers may run a little slow. For the classes in the program, classes have started a little after the designated start time. As previously mentioned, this is a small institution that is progressing at an impressive rate, but some drawbacks are bound to occur, at least temporarily. The few cons present are minimal compared to what one may gain in the program. I feel exhilarated when I enter and leave the classrooms. The program is strong and demanding, but the experience and the outcome during the conclusion of it all will be a phenomenal one.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2020

The faculty here are very supportive and helpful, which was a major factor when I chose a graduate school. I am hoping for a rigorous program, but I'm not sure just how rigorous the core classes will be. The student body seems very close to one another and to their faculty, which is also important. They have recently re-vamped their PhD course structure in an attempt to lower the average years to graduation (currently 7), so hopefully that will be successful in bringing that average down to the 6 year range.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Entering in as a new professional in the Master's of Public Health program, I feel that the atmosphere and family-oriented environment will help me focused on my path to finish, and also will give me the encouragement and motivation to go further with my studies. Being surrounded by Medical, Dental, and PhD students gives me the confidence of getting accepted into a small competitive school. The only disadvantage that I can say at the moment is the lack of available scholarships, however it is affordable and I know the material that will be taught will be life changing for the continuation of my career goals.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

Meharry Medical College definitely one of the most diverse graduate school in the United States. Meharry may be known as a "black school" but it actually is racially diverse school that focuses on those individuals coming from deserved communities and minorities so that those individuals can one day go back to those undeserved communities to serve the community. I would put the biggest reason why anyone should choose Meharry is because the entire school from the dean to the students looks at who you are and your potential rather than the numerical values on your application. It is truly a big family that takes care of each other not only during the school but also post-graduation.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Meharry is one of the smaller medical schools in the US, and with that Meharry is able to provide a more family-like and personal educational experience to all the students. Professors are usually always willing to spend extra time in and outside of class explaining concepts, reviewing material, and providing good counsel. I think it is these nurturing qualities of Meharry that allows it to produce both compassionate and skilled health professionals that go on to serve all around the country. In comparison to some of the larger medical schools, Meharry lacks some of the resources that these schools obtain easier because of its status as a small school. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my time thus far at Meharry, and look forward to finishing my education here at Meharry.
