Blog #5 Future Directions

Working in a hospital again has been an entirely new experience than it had been last summer. During the past year I have been toying with the idea of switching from medicine to law, and this internship really helped me consider my options. I was surprised to find that working in the research lab we actually come into contact with lawyers quite often. This opened my eyes to Intellectual Property law, filing for patents, and working with research labs. I think the combination of law and medicine is really the field I need to go into. My love for medicine but skillset for law makes for a beautiful combination that I wasn’t aware of until this summer. I am blessed to have connections to medical and IP lawyers due to my internship at the Mayo Clinic and hopefully I can continue working for Mayo but with a new team next summer.
