Pathfinders Update: Summer learning about Law and Medicine

I had amazing time this summer learning more about a career in law through the Yeshivah of Flatbush Pathfinders Program. I interned for Mark Salem at the law firm, Salem and Shimko in Brooklyn. I gained so much from my experience there. It taught me what a day in the life of a lawyer can look like. In addition, I was able to learn a lot about our US law. I did administrative work, read and researched old cases, and even sifted through discovery. It was really an amazing opportunity.

This summer I interned for Dr. Richard Grazi, a fertility doctor, in his office in Brooklyn. I worked on a research project with a resident and did some patient data compilation. I also sat in the back of his office and listened in on consults while he met with his patients. I even got to come into exam rooms and observe procedures like embryo transplants. It was an amazing experience to work there and I learned so much from being there for just a few weeks. Thank you Pathfinders for this opportunity.
