I am happy to have completed the internship and am very grateful to have had this opportunity. In my research, I learned about the health care crisis in India and how it is perpetuated by a deficit in qualified medical practitioners. Little did I know about the degree to which rural populations struggle to obtain quality healthcare,
and my research led me to discover the ingrained role of uncertified medical practitioners in rural villages. Overall, this opportunity completely awakened my perspective of health care outside of the United States, and I’m eager to share my findings in pursuing the Biology of Global Health major at Georgetown University.
