  • I really enjoyed being able to see and experience what I was being taught and reading about in class.
  • I enjoyed this experience and it helped me make up my mind about my career choice.
  • Although I have worked since I was 15, my mentor allowed me to realize how competitive the working field is and encouraged me to find an edge and expand my technology knowledge.
  • I experienced a lot of hands-on learning, in-planted cattle, gave vacinations, and more!
  • I was surprised to see how much interpersonal skills and effective communication is a HUGE part of a doctor's job; it's not just knowing the human body, doctors need to be good with people.
