About my YCCI Internship

YCCI positively impacted many aspects of my life. For example, I gained an extensive amount of knowledge on clinical trials and healthcare's impact on various other fields. This allowed me to connect medicine with other interests of mine, allowing me to consider various fields. Additionally, it developed important life skills such as collaboration, leadership, and public speaking. Even though it was representative of a professional environment, I had an amazing time talking with mentors and peers. It was truly a life-changing experience I will always remember.
