CPRIT Summer Undergraduate Trainee

June - August 2020 • Houston, TX

What I liked

I liked working with a team of Public Health professionals with many different perspectives. It was a great learning experience and helped me clarify what I do and do not want to do in my career.

What I wish was different

I wish that the Massive Online Open Course (MOOC) on Innovation had been updated annually. It was originally made in 2012 and much of the information should be updated since the course is so integral to the internship.

Advice

Make sure you keep yourself on a schedule that works for you, especially if the internship will be remote like mine was!
