  • “As an incoming college freshman, the experience that I gained in Clinical Rotation earned me a spot as a trainer for the Louisiana Tech football team. So many people at the university are in awe of all the things we did through my medical training in PISD.”

    Melissa Wood, Plano East Senior High graduate, Biomedicine Engineering, Louisiana Tech University

    “Clinical Rotation allows students to see the healthcare field up close. It gives them the opportunity to see medicine in a real-world setting that the traditional classroom cannot reproduce. It’s an invaluable and memorable way to learn.”

    Brian Lowery, MD, Family Practice, former clinical rotation student, Plano Senior High graduate, graduate UT Southwestern School of Medicine

    “Clinical Rotation allowed me to experience first hand many different aspects and fields of medicine that excited, stimulated, and lead me to the path I’m on today. The skills, knowledge, and experiences I took with me has given me an edge in college and now in medical school mainly because I'm not having to see and do everything from scratch.”

    Cesar Cereijo, DO, former clinical rotation student, Plano West Senior High graduate, Orthopedic Surgeon, Cleveland Clinic
