Y Luu

Biochemistry major Y Luu completed her internship at Lauring Dermatology, where she learned about many different skin diagnoses, and all the different treatment plans and cosmetic procedures done in the office. This internship was pivotal in Y’s career decisions. She sees that as a physician, there is so much energy that is put into the work every single day, and that they rely on their care team to be successful. She notes that physicians “must be energetic, caring, and charming 24/7”. Y’s goal is to help people, but after her experiences shadowing pharmacists, doctors, and physician assistants, she may reconsider medical school. This is why the internship experience is so valuable for Stevenson students; they can have a small taste of what different careers are like, before committing fully to that path.
