Fordham senior Carlisdania Mendoza has already been accepted at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

“It’s through CSTEP that I found out I wanted to be a doctor,” she said, after checking her e-mail in the program’s computer lab. Born in the Dominican Republic and raised by a single mother in the Bronx, Mendoza skipped a grade in grammar school and started college at 16, with hopes of becoming a lawyer. But a law internship changed her mind. “I didn’t like it,” she said.

So CSTEP counselors pointed her toward a paid research internship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where she studied health disparities in divergent communities. “I never looked back,” she said.

Mendoza, who graduated from Fordham College at Lincoln Center in May, was one of about 200 CSTEP students on the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses.
