From CUNY to Harvard Medical School

Join us for an engaging discussion with Dr. Elliot Melendez, a pediatric emergency physician at Boston Children’s Hospital; a physician triple board certified in pediatrics, pediatric critical care and pediatric emergency medicine; and a Harvard Medical School graduate. A high school dropout from the South Bronx, Dr. Melendez entered Lehman in 1989 after earning his GED. Working full-time while attending class, he was forced to leave school during his junior year to support his wife and newborn child. But his determination led him to return two years later and ultimately to graduate cum laude with a biology major in 1995. His research focuses on the evaluation of severe infection in infants and children, and he is also involved in a telemedicine initiative with the Hospital Buen Samaritano in rural Puerto Rico in which knowledge and expertise are shared via telemedicine technology. He will be coming to Hunter College to talk about his non-traditional path, and to answer any questions pre-med and pre-health students may have.
