Type: Research and Shadowing

Name: High School Fellows Program at NYU Langone Medical Center

Hours: 200 hours

Most Meaningful: No

Description:

This is a program for high school students interested in health careers. I shadowed doctors, nurses, physical and occupational therapists. Observing physicians interact with patients sparked in me a huge interest in medicine. We also received social and behavioral research training and conducted a research project on the correlation between caffeine consumption and sleep quality. Through surveys and literature review, we found an inverse correlation between the two factors. I saw a glimpse of how medical knowledge is developed to improve health. We were selected to present our findings at the Annual STEP conference. My experience in this program set the stage for my path to pursue medicine.
