“This internship exceeded my expectations. I had not worked on a project or interdisciplinary team like this before and was pleasantly surprised at all the attention and assistance I received from my mentors, despite their regular workload. I was not expecting to receive such support and encouragement, which was really wonderful.”
“I was able to meet with many prominent figures in the world of bioethics from around the country and even around the world, which was incredibly interesting and provided me with a whole new perspective on the field.”
"I learned coding, abstractions and different data presentation techniques from my mentor. However, her help didn't limit to internship duties, she has helped me connect with so many people in the field considering I am currently seeking a full-time opportunity."
