UMass Medical School is the Commonwealth’s first and only public academic health sciences center. As a large company, it focuses highly on education and research to find cures for diseases such as cancer and ALS.
Interning at UMass Medical School has provided me with professional experience, along with specific experience in the Human Resources field, which is where I would like to work after I graduate. I have had the opportunity to work with various departments within Human Resources, such as recruiting and compensation and benefits.
I work with an excellent team. I am working with talented professionals who are willing to help and teach me as much as possible during my internship.
