About my YCCI Internship

“The experience I have gained from YCCI has been instrumental and pivotal in my medical passions for the future. Being at a young age, the fact that I got the opportunity to listen to and interact with the leaders at the forefront of the field of clinical science has completely changed my perspective and understanding of the broad field. Ultimately, the collaboration I was able to build with other motivated individuals in my YCCI Cohort has truly inspired me even further.”

For Students Considering YCCI

“For those considering being a part of the YCCI internship: this program is truly pivotal and can completely change your standpoint in the medical field, as this opportunity gives you exposure to the sophisticated side of the medical field like no other. Not many internships allow interaction with individuals involved in professional medicine, collaboration to create a complex and developed project with other interns, and extra activities like journal club all in one opportunity.”
