There are many success stories that have come out of the University of Houston's H-LSAMP program, including those who have gone on to become medical students, practicing engineers, high school science teachers and computer programmers, as well as those embarking on the pursuit of graduate degrees.
"I graduated from the University of Houston in May 2004 and am now a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania," said Joshua Udoetuk, another recent H-LSAMP participant who earned a bachelor's degree from UH's College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. "The research experiences, teaching opportunities and workshop courses provided by H-LSAMP helped me develop a strong scientific background, so that I felt totally prepared for medical school. I feel indebted to UH and to H-LSAMP in particular for supplying the resources necessary for me to realize my dream of becoming a doctor."
Many of these graduates, as well as current students and LSAMP members from around the nation, will convene at the Fourth Annual H-LSAMP Conference held October 1-3, 2004, at the University of Houston. Put on by H-LSAMP, the conference is open to anyone who wants to register and attend. There will be workshops for various graduate and undergraduate programs, GRE classes, exhibitors recruiting students and poster and oral presentations for prizes.
