“The MFL continues to be one of the most impactful experiences that I have had since joining the faculty at Boston Medical Center/BUSM. The skills that I learned, the mentoring relationships that I developed, the doors that were opened, and the friendships that I gained have had an incredibly powerful influence on the trajectory of my career. On many occasions since MFL, I have found myself sharing insight that I gained and lessons that I learned with members of my team, residents, and junior faculty. I cannot recommend this program enough.” – Jeff Schneider, MD, Emergency Medicine, MFL 2016.
