"Thus far, I have enhanced my communication, leadership, and public speaking skills, and fortified my commitment to the field of medicine. Thanks to the internship, I am confident that I will be able to bond both my passion for research with my passion for becoming a clinician.: – Avi Purohit, MPH Candidate, Boston University School of Public Health, 2015-2016 PACaRI

"I have gained a very realistic perspective on how research works--many obstacles come up that make a project take much longer than expected... I have also gained an immense passion for research through investigating research questions, learning about the nuances and greater implications of a project, and running experiments to develop these conclusions." Emily Greenwald, Brandeis University, PACaRI 2015-2016


One of the most memorable and important experiences I had during my internship was when I attended the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA) conference.  At SPA I had a lot of visitors come by my poster and really ask about my project. A lot of these physicians agreed that the data wasn't really out there regarding my topic and that my study would be a good start. It opened my eyes to the possibilities as a future physician.—Sandra Lee, PACaRI 2014-2015



"The best part of the internship I think would be the translational nature of it. Being able to see the work you’re doing on a computer in a cubicle translating to actual applications in a patient population I thought was the most unique and the coolest part of the internship." Sam Rudisill, Notre Dame, PACaRI 2017-2018


"The best part would definitely have to be the opportunity to network with people and work with people who are in this field and in this as careers... with the physicians, with some of the residents, just working in that setting and seeing that culture and seeing that environment. I feel like my desire to continue and pursue this was only confirmed and strengthened." Thomas Huang, Tufts University, PACaRI 2016-2017



"I thought [the internship] was great, I loved getting to see the OR, I thought it was a good intro to stats, good intro to writing abstracts, when I came here I was all ready to write abstracts, good prep for writing papers, I thought it was a great experience." Dan Snyder, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, PACaRI 2015-2017


"I never really fully understood what it was like for a physician to both practice clinically and also do research and how that balance was achieved. I always [thought] that people who practice clinically are super busy and don’t have time, so it was cool to see how they fit that into their clinical practice." Keith Savran, Tufts Medical School, PACaRI 2017-2018
