Participants Feedback

On the overall experience…

The internship exceeded my expectations. I didn’t expect to cover so much in five short days. We covered a lot from learning how to insert an IV to handling mental health crises. I didn’t expect to have such real and exciting hands on experiences while walking away with training in a wide variety of areas.”

On the effectiveness of the staff…

” The staff bonded very well with all of us and were always available for questions throughout the internship. I was able to get good contacts in order to learn more about medical careers through the staff. They were excellent instructors and made sure everyone was engaged throughout the program.
