I’m in the Pre-Health program at Fordham, so this school year I looked into different research and clinical immersion opportunities for undergraduates near Fordham, hoping to get some experience in a hospital environment. One of my professors suggested that I apply for a program at Mount Sinai Hospital on the Upper East Side, as a Sinai Research Associate. As a research associate, I volunteer in the Emergency Department twice a week, helping to recruit patients to enroll in clinical studies going on at the hospital. In this way, not only am I learning about the nature of clinical research, but I also get to interact with patients, as well as shadow doctors in the ER! The program has provided me with invaluable experience that I hope to apply in my future career!
