What I liked
I loved my experience at Mayo Clinic in the SURF program. As a part of the SURF program, you get assigned a lab to work with for 10 weeks, and receive compensation throughout those weeks. You work on a research project, and at the end of the 10 weeks you present your results. There are also a ton of information sessions throughout the program teach you about the grad school application and acceptance process and what it's like to have a career in research. At the end of the 10 weeks, there is opportunity to continue to work with your research lab, which is what I'm doing right now!
