I was placed in the Department of Pediatrics and had a wonderful experience learning from the administrative staff and clinical faculty. In the period of just eight weeks, I learned so much about what the role of finance and operations is in academic medicine. I was also fortunate enough to experience many of the exciting initiatives within the department including the clinic integration project. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone with a business background who is interested in healthcare and medicine.

After completing the twelve-week Rheumatology and Arthritis Research Program, I can say that I am grateful for the opportunity that the research team gave to form part of the team. I had a fantastic time this summer, and everyone whom I met contributed to such a delightful experience. I was able to work on my research guided by a remarkable mentor who gave me opportunities to learn and grow as a future doctor. She focused on teaching me the clinical research skills I needed to succeed in my role, but she also committed to helping me achieve my professional goals. I still have much to learn and a significant path to walk, but these experiences have set a foundation for me to use in the future.

My summer experience participating in the General Internal Medicine Internship at Weill Cornell Medicine strongly reaffirmed my desire to pursue a career in medicine. By learning from and working with GIM faculty, I was able to hone my research skills and take advantage of the academic resources that a prestigious medical research institution like WCM has to offer. Through the internship, I developed an invaluable mentor relationship with a GIM faculty member, and learned how to collect and synthesize data from academic studies in order to write my first scoping literature review.

As an intern at GIM, I learned so much about the many facets of patient care that go beyond disease. From doing research to interacting with patients, my experiences allowed me to cultivate a more well-rounded perspective on medicine. Above all, one of the most valuable aspects of the internship was the relationships that I formed with the other interns and my own team!
