Johns Hopkins Medicine

Undergraduate Research Assistant

June 2019 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

I absolutely love this opportunity to learn new skills and apply my knowledge hands-on in real data. I have really enjoyed working with my Principal Investigator on a personal level and I have learned so much in my time here.

What I wish was different

I wish I had access to LinkedIn Learning courses to have more organized instruction on statistical analysis, for I have been learning how to use RStudio by myself.

Advice

Building strong relationships with your professors and teaching assistants is incredibly valuable, because they can introduce incredible opportunities that I otherwise would not have had the connections to. Having a personal recommendation to a job or position establishes your credibility at a higher standard than any impressive resume.

Research Intern

June - August 2018 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

Through this internship, I was able to get a firsthand experience in the medical field and learn about the topics that I am studying through my pre-med coursework. From getting to participate in multiple neurosurgery research projects to shadowing and working with passionate physicians, this experience helped me to become even more confident in my hope of one day going to Medical School to become a physician.

Advice

Be open minded. I know a lot of people are hesitant to get involved in research, but it seriously has been the best thing that I have done so far as an undergrad. Personally, my experience in research has allowed me to not only get a better understanding of the medical field, but to be able to participate in it as well. Every area of academics relies on research, so whether you're pre-med, a history major, or anything in between, there is something out there for you, and I really would recommend looking into it!

Research intern

May - August 2018 • Baltimore, MD

What I liked

The experience of working in a lab and the exposure to a wide range of research interests. I also enjoyed the ability to be able to have a lot of equipment available.

What I wish was different

There was a research symposium that occurred before the end of the program, and I think that adjusting the timeline of the program to allow us to present at the end of the program would be better.

Advice

There are many opportunities for networking
