Read Michael's Experience 

"It was a phenomenal experience. From a research standpoint, I learned a lot and was able to improve my research skills and learn to avoid many of the major pitfalls. I also had the opportunity to meet and work with a number of leaders in the field. At the end of the year, I was fortunate to have been selected as ‘Section Editor of the Year’ and was promoted to be one of the Section Editors for Medical Education. While this is definitely not something you have to do, I am really grateful to have had the opportunity to do this."
