Summer Health Internship Program Alumna
My summer in Harlem was one that will forever be embedded in my heart! Fresh out of high school, I was able to shadow the medical team in the birthing center in Harlem Hospital as well as meet several other health professionals within NYC. From Sylvia’s to surgery, I was enamored by what Harlem had to offer me and my aspirations. MSI-AHEC has shown me nothing but genuine love and support from the moment I sent in my SHIP application. Ever since my time in SHIP, I’ve fully immersed myself into medicine and will be applying to medical school upon my graduation from the University at Albany! Even throughout my college years, I still found myself utilizing the advice gained from SHIP. MSI-AHEC is at the core of my medical journey and was the first stepping stone into my future.
