As an intern working as a Clinical Care Technician/Unit Coordinator at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Marwah was on the front lines at a busy, urban hospital. Assisting doctors, nurses and patients in the perioperative unit, Marwah learned how to work as part of a team, how to communicate with people from all walks of life and how to quickly and effectively solve problems. She says that her Emmanuel classwork as a biology major helped her on the job, and her membership in Emmanuel's Biology Club and MEDLIFE broadened her understanding of science and medicine.
My internship at Tufts Medical Center has given me the chance to see how things work in the real world, and that's going to help as I build a career in healthcare. My hands-on hospital internship combined with my biology classes at Emmanuel, have put me in a good position to achieve my goal of becoming a physician assistant.
