What Do Past Interns Have To Say?

My internship through Med Ed Materials has benefited me in many ways, providing me with a sense of accomplishment and pride. This summer, I was able to develop skills, gain volunteer hours, and earn an award for dedicating time to contribute to a passion of mine: accessible healthcare. I really enjoyed the format of the internship- I was able to meet weekly over Zoom with Ross (the founder, CEO, and Chairman of the Board for Med Ed Materials) and the other interns to discuss progress, set weekly goals, and participate in a journal club. I spent the majority of my summer traveling, so the ability to work on my goals at my own pace throughout the week allowed me to find time outside of summer activities that were also important to me. Working independently after collaborating with the team each week helped me to develop better time management and communication skills. I really enjoyed the journal club that Ross and Keon structured. Each week, the team would discuss an article that had been assigned at the meeting one week prior. The discussion included Ross and Keon asking questions that were extremely relevant to reviewing both the specific article and medical literature in general, while also tying in details from medical school and board exam curriculum. I really enjoyed learning and further developing my critical thinking and reasoning skills as we explored various medical specialties. One of my favorite aspects of the internship was exploring numerous topics in the field of healthcare, learning more about topics I was most passionate about, and working to deliver that information in an accessible manner. Through my internship with Med Ed Materials, I have expanded my skillset by becoming more proficient at using Canva. Learning how to navigate Canva is beneficial in many ways both personally and professionally, as one can use the platform for many purposes: advertising, fundraising, educating, raising awareness, etc. Overall, I loved the opportunity to work towards the mission of Med Ed Materials: to increase health literacy levels for low income and uninsured populations by producing and distributing evidence based healthcare materials. As I move forward in my medical career, I am more confident in my ability to communicate complex information in a manner that is understood by all.

I very much enjoyed my internship at Med Ed Materials, and highly recommend it to any Pre-Meds out there! Being completely virtual, our weekly meetings were super flexible. Ross (our founder and CEO) is very open to any ideas you may want to pursue for the organization, making the experience personalizable as well. Having experience making and editing videos, I came up with the idea to make trendy “TikTok-esque” videos for our Instagram/YouTube to gain more exposure for our organization. In addition to his enthusiasm for new ideas, Ross was constantly asking for our thoughts on how to improve the organization. He asked us for our opinion on the website design, which has slowly evolved and improved with our feedback. It has been extremely rewarding interning for Med Ed Materials. In addition to contributing to a good cause — improving health literacy for low income and uninsured populations — helping Med Ed Materials continue to grow and improve its outreach has been a truly enriching experience.

Our weekly journal club meetings, where we read and discussed medical journals, were also extremely informative. These activities gave us a preview of the kind of work we would do in medical school, and gave us early exposure into how physicians make medical decisions. These discussions have helped shape my understanding of the role physicians have in healthcare, as well as the type of physician I would like to be.

If you are a Pre-Med student looking for a rewarding healthcare volunteer experience, I highly recommend Med Ed Materials!

Interning for Med Ed Materials allowed me to get involved in areas of healthcare in a way where I can help increase health literacy. The flexibility and personalized experience of this internship let me focus on topics that I am interested in and can create posters about. The intern position also provided me the opportunity to launch Med Ed Materials’ social media pages where I got experience handling a business account and creating content that targets potential new members. Not only was I contributing to educating the community about health literacy, but I also got to be part of a team to expand the purpose of the organization and recruit new members. An additional part of this internship experience was being in an informal journal club where interns got to discuss the findings and results of medical studies with the board members who are current medical students. Being part of journal club gave me valuable insight on how to annotate medical journal articles and analyze their results. Overall, I believe this was a very beneficial experience as it further gave me experience in being part of healthcare education in not only creating new materials but also better understanding medical literature.
