Video: Lee Abrahamsen is at the heart of Bates' medical studies program
Each year, close to 90 percent of Bates students applying to medical or veterinary schools gain admission. That record of success is due in part to the work by Lee Abrahamsen, associate professor of biology and chair of the college’s medical studies committee.
Because of her own experiences in college, Abrahamsen keenly understands that as students change and grow, they need help adjusting their career plans. “We know there’s development that goes on, but sometimes it’s not thought about in terms of where a student begins — what they’re capable of thinking and understanding in their freshman year — versus their senior year.”
