While in the medical academy, I really enjoyed it. When being in the academy you are given more freedom then your home school. You are given the option for an off campus lunch and everyday is different then it would be at the school. I also enjoyed being able to meet new people and make new friends from the two other schools that were also in the academy. I learned a lot about the medical field that I didn’t know before like the many options that are given to you in the specialization you choose. The academy really helped me expand my options and choices and they also helped me look more in depth with the career I wanted to specialize in. Throughout this whole experience I grew, I learned how not to be so shy and work better when put into groups. Next year I’m considering joining the Junior academy they have.
