12. Supporting Students and Young Professionals

By Dan McCormick, MHA | November 17, 2014

One of the finest moments for me with ETR’s Kirby Summer Interns last year was the time one of them said, “I love being an intern at ETR! I still can’t believe I get to be here. I have friends doing internships where they just go and sit in meetings, or they do filing. I am doing real work here. I’m analyzing data. I’m contributing to a manuscript. I am learning how to be a stronger professional. This is amazing.”

I’m delighted this young woman had such a positive experience here. Her robust praise relates directly to the commitment of ETR’s staff to collaboration and mutual support. Our research group—from senior scientists to newly hired research assistants—stepped up to welcome and engage our interns. These students became a vital part of our workforce during their three months here.

This reflects a larger commitment ETR feels to the importance of supporting students and young professionals in the health education and research arena.
