I loved getting to interact and partner with very diverse patients and staff. I also appreciated getting to see the everyday realities of working in public health and the immense amount of initiative they let me take in my position.
What I wish was different
I wish I had been paid for this internship because I spent many, many hours there.
Don't be afraid to ask questions and apply yourself. The culture of a non-profit clinic can be a bit chaotic and at the beginning I didn't know where I fit or how to jump in, but once I got the bravery to just dive in, I had a great experience and loved getting to work with the other staff.
