Ner Israel Cohort

Students from the Ner Israel Rabbinical College have been taking classes at Stevenson to supplement their courses at their home institution. This cohort of 13 students are preparing for medical school or other health professions and as such, need courses like general chemistry, organic chemistry and biochemistry. After successfully completing organic chemistry with Dr. Ward last spring, the students are now enrolled in Biochemistry with Dr. Dwyer which meets in the evening. This arrangement, which kicked off in January, is a special two-year program—designed specifically for Ner Israel students—that allows them to complete a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Pre-Med Focus and minor in Medical Humanities while accommodating their studies at Ner Israel. Dr. Dwyer met with the biochem class last Thursday and took a photo break.
