“The whole experience became something that I will always keep in my heart, it was just an amazing opportunity that I will never forget. The internship was a great experience for me to try different specialties in a short-term period, which helps me to pre-select what would give me joy to work on in the future. I am already missing the clinics a lot. I feel more confident, I feel more skilled, and have acquired knowledge that I know I can use in future.” – Ana Pereira
