About my YCCI Internship
I am grateful for my time as a YCCI intern. It was an amazing experience. Having the chance to learn and talk with the top industry leaders in many different fields gave me valuable knowledge that I can apply to my future. I was able to learn all of the many facets of clinical research, particularly about underrepresented communities and lack of participation. In addition, the need to educate teens and adolescents on the importance of clinical trials. I was able to collaborate with likeminded peers and made lifelong friends in the process. If you are a leader looking to make a positive change, I strongly recommend this internship.
