About My YCCI Internship

My experience as an YCCI intern was amazing. I was able to develop, alongside my team, a wonderful project that made children and adolescent assent forms more user friendly and less intimidating. During my time as an intern, I got the chance to speak with so many professionals; it was truly inspiring. It was incredible how I could ask questions of these professionals and have a productive conversation. I really learned a lot and my goal to become a physician became much clearer.
