Sameen Meshkin
Harvard Medical School

Sameen is a soon-to-be doctor, receiving his medical education at Harvard Medical School. Sameen went through the BS/MD process with a guaranteed spot in medical school through Virginia Commonwealth University’s BS/MD Guaranteed Admission Program for Medicine, and was a recipient of VCU’s Presidential Scholarship, which covers tuition, fees and room and board. As a student of the VCU Honors College, he majored in biology through the College of Humanities and Sciences, and music through the School of the Arts. During this time, he was awarded Virginia Commonwealth University’s award for Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship 2016, for his interdisciplinary study Preserving a Sense of Honor, Conscience, and Dignity during Medical School for the Physician-Patient Relationship.

Sameen has spent his tenure at VCU preparing for medical school and his chosen career, which of course, includes shadowing doctors, working as an international medical scribe, hospital and nursing home volunteer; and through these activities, he has witnessed how some practitioners seem to lose sight of their calling to respect and heal others. Sameen seeks to understand how and why this may happen; for he knows first-hand that almost all who enter the field, do so to help others through not only intellect and expertise but also through respect and compassion. At Harvard Medical School, he intends to pursue translational research on neurodegenerative diseases to investigate the pathology associated with demyelinating conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS). Following this, Sameen would like to teach at the university level and would seek to instill in his students a passion for research.

Sameen enjoys sharing his passion and insight with the students and families of Premed HQ.

Shad Chowdhury
Founder of Premed HQ

With eight years of BS/MD coaching experience, Shadman (Shad) Chowdhury has turned the art of BS/MD admissions into a science.

In high school, Shad successfully went through the BS/MD admissions process with the Drew and NJMS BA/MD program, receiving a scholarship award offer of over $30,000 per year. With a high school GPA that barely met the minimum requirements for most BS/MD programs, Shad developed unorthodox strategies to stand out in the highly competitive BS/MD candidate pool. His unique experience has taught him the vital importance of crafting an exceptional application and narrative, above all else. Shad develops the unique admissions strategies that contributes to the tremendous success and competitive advantage granted to Premed HQ’s students and families.

Shad’s clinical research interests includes cardiopulmonary critical care and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He has been invited to present his work at multiple international conferences, with his most recent presentation at the prominent American Thoracic Society Conference. His most recent publication in the Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is titled Noninvasive Assessment of Inspiratory Muscle Endurance during Rest and Exercise in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Cardiovascular Disorders. Shad has worked directly under some of the highest esteemed physician mentors in cardiopulmonary medicine, including Dr. Ahmet Baydur who has almost 50 years of experience as a medical doctor, and Dr. John B West, considered one of the “fathers” of pulmonary medicine. While working with some of the poorest and most medically under-served patients in Los Angeles under the mentorship of his seasoned clinician mentors, Shad gained deep insights into the medical field.

In addition, Shad has observed the admissions committee deliberations for both medical school and residency programs. He has interviewed admissions committee members and deans of admission from some of the most prestigious BS/MD programs, medical schools, and residency programs in the nation.

As a result of his experiences and insight, he demands that his team and his students produce exceptional quality work. He personally reviews the most critical essays of the BS/MD and college admissions process, for every student working with Premed HQ. He expects perfection by the time each student’s essays reach him, and Premed HQ’s advisory board, for the final approval.

Nikita Mittal
UC San Diego School of Medicine

My name is Nikita Mittal and I am a third year undergraduate Human Biology major part of the Medical Scholars B.S./M.D. program at UCSD/UCSD SOM. Realizing my immense and unfaltering desire to become a doctor growing up, I knew that I was ready to make the commitment to go into medicine as a high school senior. Since then, I have engaged in activities both related to science and medicine as well as in other disciplines to create for myself the most enjoyable and wholesome college experience. Some of the interests I have expounded on throughout my years aside from medicine include travel, dance/basketball, yoga, hiking, reading, writing, and community service work.

In terms of science/medicine, and particularly in mental health, I have involved myself in conducting research. Particularly, over the course of the past year, I have worked as a clinical research intern at Rady Children’s Hospital in The Child and Adolescent Service Research Center (CASRC). Working primarily in research projects involving finding ways to appease the effects of autism and also having the opportunity to directly work in the community towards bridging the gap between the disparity in the resources that these kids need versus what they are given, I derive much joy from the work I do in Dr. Brookman-Frazee’s lab. Further projects I have already started/plan to take on include conducting work in third world countries in educational/medical settings as well as also working locally at different camps in rural San Diego made for children who are at a higher chance of developing mental health conditions due to specific familial hardships. My overall goal with these projects is to work towards reversing the negative stereotype regarding mental health on top of also simply providing service and care towards those inflicted by mental health disorders.

Deriving so much satisfaction from the opportunities that I have been able to explore both outside of medicine as well as in passions I have found in medicine due specifically to the fact that I was part of a B.S./M.D. program, I had no hesitation in deciding to join PremedHQ: A company dedicated to helping students in high school enter these very programs. Personally, being a part of this company for the past two years, I have successfully worked with several clients to help them get into these programs as well as other undergraduate schools. Whether it be answering all the questions both the student or the parents have about the college admission process (or specifically bs/md programs), helping them with all the essays they plan to submit in their applications, or coaching them for and through the interview process, I derive much joy in helping students reach their dream schools/programs. I would have to say my favorite part, aside from seeing how happy they get when they start getting acceptances from schools, is comparing the final versions of their essays from the original ones they wrote. Seeing the immense difference just a few weeks of hard work from our end as well as their end can make is truly satisfying and exciting.

My work at PremedHQ, however, spans beyond just being a mentor/coach for students. I am also a designated writer for the company. This means that I write several of the articles that appear on the website on topics that are meant to provide both students and parents with more information regarding this application process and B.S/M.D. programs. I have combined the knowledge I have learned throughout my own application cycle, the knowledge I have acquired by doing immense amounts of research/meeting with many different people in these programs (students as well as faculty), and the knowledge from higher members of PremedHQ, so that I can play my role in giving families all the information/resources that they would want or need.
Together then, my work and experience leaves me feeling more than equipped to help young students, filled with a passion for science and medicine, to now reach their goals of entering combined medical (B.S./M.D.) programs.

Adarsh Kadoor
UC San Diego School of Medicine

I am a senior Medical Scholar and Regents Scholar at UC San Diego currently working toward my B.S. in General Biology and a minor in Business. I will be matriculating into the UCSD School of Medicine in Fall 2018. Outside of the classroom, I am currently involved in scientific research that explores improving nerve regeneration techniques as part of the Shah Lab in the UCSD Departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Bioengineering. Research has always been a passion of mine, as I have co-authored two papers in the past five years – one as an intern/shadow at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Department of Orthopedic Surgery last summer, and another as a research fellow at the Stony Brook University Department of Medicine as a rising senior in high school. Besides research, I enjoy giving back to the community – be it as a volunteer to help run a free clinic in Tijuana through the UCSD HFiT program or as one of the organizers of a fundraising event that raised over $7000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation. At this moment, I hope that I can one day realize my dream of becoming an orthopedic surgeon with an emphasis on sports medicine, but I also cannot wait to explore other specializations as a medical student in the years to come.

Being on the brink of medical school certainly is a blessing and an opportunity that I don’t take for granted. There are so many people – family, friends, teachers, and counselors – in my life that I am thankful for helping me get to this position. Taking on a similar mentorship role as a Premed HQ coach to work with young minds that are excited about kickstarting their own medical careers brings everything back, full circle. It is extremely rewarding to play a role – be it through providing advice for essays or interviews – in helping these superstar students maximize their potential and chase their own dreams.
