"GW’s location in Washington, D.C., is perfect for exploring and finding a job … I took a class at the National Museum of American History during my first semester and ended up working there all summer ."

"My research will allow me to play a role in revising K–12 curricula to include the history, experiences and perspectives of Black Americans so that young Black children can see themselves in their education."

"What we learned in the classroom translated so easily to our everyday lives ... how organizations work internally, how they interact with outside organizations and how things can change within."

“My life is busier than I ever thought it could be, but if I had more hours in the day, I would spend them in the GW Geography Department. It still feels like home.”

"My graduate degree was critical in further developing a feminist lens and approach. ... I now have a deeper understanding of my work advocating for social justice."

“Serving diverse client populations in the clinic, along with multiple populations in externships, allowed me to flourish as a flexible clinician and problem-solver. ... I now feel equipped to serve multiple populations thanks to the resources, courses and mentorship I was given."

The MATS program was one of the best choices I've made. I chose to continue to this program after GCATS, because I knew I would be provided with a quality education and access to resources. The faculty is very supportive, engaging, and has our best interest. Dr. Chiaramello is one of the most outstanding advisors. She has played a pivotal role in my academic career by guiding through the MCAT and medical school application process. I will always be thankful for the mentorship Dr. Chiaramello has given me.

I am so grateful that I was able to be a part of the inaugural class of the MATS program. It readily prepared me for medical school, and provided me with opportunities that I would not have gotten elsewhere. The small class size allows the faculty to get to personally know you, and the faculty truly cares about you. The classes mirror a medical school curriculum, and provide you with an excellent foundation in the anatomical sciences, which can be built upon during medical school. Dr. Chiaramello, the director of the MATS program, is truly a gem.

She gets to know you on a personal level, and wants the absolute best for every single one of her students. She does everything in her power to help out her students, and provides real guidance on how students can improve their medical school applications. Dr. Chiaramello is honestly one of the main reasons why I decided to enrol in this program, because I knew that she could provide me with the necessary direction that I really needed. The MATS program and Dr. Chiaramello provided me with the needed foundation, and I now feel confident in myself and my abilities to become a physician.

After taking pharmacology, systems physiology, pharmacogenomics, genomes, neuropharmacology, and an ethics course, I can say with confidence I am more prepared and ready for medical school. The rigor of the courses offered in the MATS program tested my ability to perform at a level expected of year 1 medical students. In the second year of the MATS program, we learned over 400 drugs (including their mechanisms of action, indications, contraindications, toxicities, and administration/distribution), genomic medicine theories and techniques, methods to handle bioethical conflicts, and further developed graduate level writing skills in demanding courses mixed with PhD students. As an academic advisor, Dr. Anne Chiaramello guided students with medical school applications, career planning, and general academic advising throughout the program. GCATS/MATS students and alumni are welcome to arrange one-on-one meetings with Dr. Chiaramello for guidance in any subject related to the students’ future career goals.

“I can work to change the laws — I can help those people with mental illness who are being put in jail instead of mental hospitals. Having this master’s degree from GW in forensic psychology means I’ll be heard.”

"You will never view Shakespeare the same after becoming an ACA graduate. Training is incredible."
