“My internship provided me with an understanding of the field of medicine from both the clinical and research perspectives. Working at Van Andel Research Institute provided me with excellent mentors, and outstanding summer research opportunity, and a great way to learn more about the field of biomedical sciences. I am so grateful to have had this internship and know that it helped me to get where I am now, at Wayne State University School of Medicine.”
