Daniella C. Sisniega, M.D., said she was “never let down” by UTEP and its Medical Professions Institute. The MPI helped prepare Sisniega to be accepted to the Boston University School of Medicine Early Medical School Selection Program. She earned her medical degree there in 2018.
The biological sciences program prepares graduates to teach biology, conduct research or practice medicine, among other fields. A major in biology also prepares students for professional schools and graduate studies.
