Archived Ad: Broadening Outlooks on the Health Profession

I aspire to improve the health and wellness of those around me by gaining experience in the medical or public health field. Recently, I completed a summer internship at the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene in the Bureau of Tuberculosis Control. My research experience includes work at the Mailman School of Public Health and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. My questions are for medical school students and physicians: What was the best and most informative experience you had before applying to medical school? How did this experience change the way you view health and medicine? If you took time off, how did you spend that time in a meaningful way? What skills and values do you think are most important in the health profession? How do you see medical education changing in the future?
