About my YCCI Internship

I enjoyed the YCCI internship. The instructors really took their time explaining things. It is a really good opportunity to take if you want to go into the medical field. My project was to make clinical investigation interesting to children and thanks to YCCI, my group and I will be able to create a webpage, video game, brochure, and a tiktok account informing children all about the wonders of clinical investigation.
