McLean Hospital (Behavioral Health Partial Hospital Program) | www.mcleanhospital.org/programs/behavioral-health-partial-hospital-program  Joey Cheung (Psychology, International Relations, 2016)  Clinical Research Assistant;

 Part-time, 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

As an intern at the BHP, I help my supervisor recruit participants and run clinical research experiments as well as prepare papers and manuscripts. My responsibilities vary depending on which projects are currently active in the department, and I meet with my supervisor once a week to go over the tasks I have been working on. This summer, I helped the BHP redesign the computer program for an ancillary study testing a new type of computer-based cognitive bias modification (CBM) treatment for patients with depression and anxiety. In addition, I completed a literature search on sex differences in borderline personality disorder and began preliminary analyses of qualitative data collected from a previous study.

How did you find your internship?

I emailed a number of psych labs in the Boston area. I came across an old ad from the BHP and emailed the contact person (who happens to be my supervisor) to see if they had openings for the summer.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I am immensely grateful for the amount of mentorship and autonomy my supervisors have given me.

Every week, the post-doctoral fellows hold a seminar for the interns about grad school, career development, and new areas of research. Because everyone is so friendly and open to questions, I felt comfortable approaching different people with questions about their jobs or if I need help on anything.

What do you find challenging?

The most challenging aspect was learning how to construct a psychology experiment using a computer program I had never worked with before. I didn’t mind solving this very large puzzle, though, because learning how to use EPrime (the computer program) will be helpful in the future. Also, the commute from Tufts to McLean is pretty hefty on public transportation, so getting to and from work daily was a mild challenge.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Reach out to as many people as possible and talk to whomever is willing to talk to you! I think it is incredibly important to keep an open mind about the research opportunities and projects available. The areas of research that I am doing now are completely unrelated to what I have experience in at school, and the tasks I am completing are always new. By keeping an open mind, I have learned more about psychiatric disorders, treatments, and assessments than I ever did in class. I feel like it is important to learn more now, rather than being too focused on one specific area. Also, don’t be discouraged from reaching out to labs that aren’t actively looking for research assistants. During my search, I emailed any lab that took undergrad research assistants. Many got back to me later with at least an interview. Had I only applied to the places actively looking, I would have had a much smaller pool of options.

About the Organization McLean Hospital, Behavioral Health Partial (BHP) Hospital Program; Belmont, MA With a staff of 2000, McLean aims to improve the lives of those affected by psychiatric illnesses through providing specialized care and therapies, conducting research to translate findings to appropriate preventions and cures, and providing education about mental health issues to eliminate stigma.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

I compile media lists, call reporters and pitch stories, research potential and current clients, and monitor media for client mentions.

How did you find your internship?

Family/friend referral. A family member told me about the company, and I reached out for an interview.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

I enjoy working at a small company and learning about the different roles each person has. Cold-calling reporters and pitching stories to them was the biggest but most rewarding challenge to overcome.

Lastly, learning about non-profits and politicians as well as major news outlets in Boston gave me a greater understanding of the news and PR landscape.

What do you find challenging?

It's a non-structured internship with virtually no training or follow-up, so you really have to self-motivate and be aware of what is going on and how you can help. Learning how to politely offer assistance when I had nothing to do and ask questions when a task wasn't well-explained was tough at first.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Ask questions and try to learn as much about the company as possible. Although you might be given smaller tasks, it's important to understand the full picture so you realize the relevancy of your daily work. As far as applying, you should just reach out and make sure you are knowledgeable about what the company does and who the clients are and have been.

MGH Psychiatric Oncology | www.massgeneral.org/cancer/research/researchlab.aspx?id=1427  Nayanika Kotagiri (Psychology, Community Health, 2017)  Research Assistant; Full-time,  35 - 40 hours per week  Unpaid but receiving Career Center Internship Grant What do you do as an intern at this organization?

As an intern at the Psychiatric Oncology department at MGH, I worked as part of the Cancer Outcomes Research (CORe) group. I specifically worked under Dr. Kelly Irwin, who is a psychiatrist doing research on cancer disparities in patients with severe mental illness. My daily activities primarily consisted of reviewing and studying medical charts and collecting data for a retrospective medical review on cancer patients with severe mental illness. I also helped put together and submit IRB protocols for new research studies.

How did you find your internship?

I found my internship through a friend from Peer Health Exchange who worked for my boss during an internship required for the Community Health major.

What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The part I enjoyed most was how much I was able to learn from my boss, coworkers, research group, and the projects I worked on as a research assistant. Cancer outcomes research, specifically in those with severe mental illness, is a unique combination of psychology, community health, and medicine. I learned a significant amount about cancer and psychiatric treatment simply through reading medical charts. It was also great to have the opportunity to shadow different psychiatrists and come into contact with psychiatric patients and treatments that I did not have prior exposure to. Generally, MGH presents several learning opportunities to explore interests in the medical and clinical fields.

What do you find challenging?

There was a significant amount of self-teaching involved. When I started off with my internship, I had to become familiar with a lot of aspects of medicine and care: for example, how different types of cancers are treated, the variations in terminology among medical charts, and the most efficient way to go through medical charts. Contrarily, this challenge also presents a steep learning curve simply by going through charts and looking up new information.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

My advice would be to be flexible in terms of duties and learning opportunities. The nature of working with a research group like this is that it allows you to get exposure to many aspects of care in the clinical field, and it could be something that you’re not familiar with. A similar piece of advice is to advocate for any clinical experience that you would like, especially shadowing doctors or other health professionals.

About the Organization In a collaboration between the Department of Psychiatry, consistently rated the best program in the US, and the Mass General Cancer Center, ranked among the top ten in the nation, we are able to complement the research on cancer treatments by focusing on the psychological and behavioral aspects of cancer. We have an overall interest in improving the recognition and treatment of psychological distress in the setting of cancer treatment.

What do you do as an intern at this organization?

My role as the Director of Campaigns Intern entails reviewing and vetting submissions for a campaign contest we funded with our sponsors. These campaigns fall under one of five sectors in global development: Peace, Environmental Sustainability, Global Health, Gender Equality, and Global Education. I then worked with the prize winners to develop their campaign presentations for our annual Millennium Campus Conference, which was held at the UN Headquarters this year. As a summer intern at MCN, I am also responsible for organizing the conference, where I contribute to outreach, content, and operations. At the actual conference, the intern team oversees all operations and troubleshooting.

Each intern has more specific duties, like leading keynote stage management or managing registration for delegates. I am also continually looking for partners to engage in cross-promotional opportunities.

After pinpointing potential partnerships, I pitch them to our Executive Director and an appropriate contact at the other organization.

How did you find your internship?

Basic web searches led me to find this one on Idealist.org What do you enjoy most about your internship?

The supervisors are invested in our professional and personal growth and entrust us with larger responsibilities. We have weekly "learning communities" where a director sits down with the interns to develop leadership skills, share career advice, teach a lesson on an aspect of global development, or help us achieve life/work balance. These meetings are not only valuable, but enjoyable. I am also able to take the lead on projects with minimal guidance, which may be off-putting for some students.

What do you find challenging?

Because I have so much freedom to implement my ideas, at times it is difficult to remain confident in my abilities and trust that the outcomes will be received well by others.

What advice would you offer to someone who wants to make the most of an internship like yours?

Be cognizant of how more experienced co-workers operate in the workspace and incorporate it into your own tasks and behavior. You will be more successful and happy in a professional setting by communicating and functioning in a style similar to those around you.

About the Organization Millennium Campus Network; Boston, MA The world needs leadership, global citizenship, and collaboration. Our Generation answers this call.

We are transforming the future of global development practice by identifying and supporting key student leaders to: re-think the paradigms that perpetuate inequality, including connecting how our social identities affect our work and including challenging all sectors in their effect on poverty; promote a human-centric and collaborative approach to global development based on authentic and communityled partnerships; and transform dialogue into action by presenting opportunities to act, challenging towards advocacy, and celebrating concrete action.
