My Internship

Katherine Tavarez ‘15

“The required Senior Internship at Pine Manor is incredibly valuable. You are allowed to pick an area of interest and explore it. My internships showed me what I do and don't like. At my first internship in a research lab at Tufts University, I learned that I didn't want to work with tissues or mice. At my second internship at Reprosource Fertility, I learned that I don't want to be at the bottom of a company, but rather want to move up in responsibility. That is what helped me to decide to go on for more education and apply to a PhD program. I also found out that I really love working on fertility issues and want it to be my focus.”

Heba Khurram '14

“I completed my senior internship at UnitedHealth Care. I learned how to talk to patients about the importance of preventative services. I was given the chance to educate members about basic health concepts. At this internship I learned about the strong presence of linguistic/cultural barriers in healthcare. During the internship, I partnered with another PMC student to conduct a controlled study that helped employees recognize these barriers in their member population.”
