About my YCCI Internship
From my YCCI internship experience, I feel that I have learned about medicine and clinical trials in an all-encompassing, perspective-broadening way. The great amount of relevant and insightful information that I've noted, ranging from extremely interesting scientific topics in research to personal stories about unorthodox career trajectories, has instilled in me only a stronger fervor to seek out the areas I'm interested in. Working alongside such bright peers has been a definite highlight of the past summer, and our work to improve Yale's Epic MyChart Portal has certainly been an exciting time with the prospect of meaningful advancements. I can't wait to see the continued success of my peers in the future!
