What three words would you use to describe Lewis & Clark?

鼓励,好奇心,发人深省

你是否也有机会做研究与教授?如果是这样,描述了项目和经验。

Unfortunately, I was not able to do research with a professor at Lewis & Clark. However, I did do research at 俄勒冈 Health & Science University (OHSU) in the Developmental Brain Imaging Lab during the summer after my sophomore year. The study I worked on was looking at the neurotoxic effects of alcohol in adolescents with and without a family history of substance use.

“Lewis & Clark is the reason I have my job.”
Why did you choose Lewis & Clark?

Aside from the enticingly beautiful campus, I chose Lewis & Clark for three reasons. First, I loved the prospect of being able to continue with athletics, while still having my primary focus be on academics. Second, I was very attracted to the small class sizes and the ability to have personal relationships with professors. In fact, I still have lunch every so often with several of my professors! Finally, I was impressed with Lewis & Clark’s global focus. Studying abroad was highly recommended, and even required for some majors. My study abroad experience in France provided me with new perspectives, confidence in the unknown, and a greater sense of self.

描述你的工作。

我在发育的脑成像实验室工作OHSU的,并且是对青少年大脑和认知发展(ABCD)研究的研究助理。 ABCD的研究是由美国国家卫生研究院资助,发生在全国各地的22个其他网站。一个联合体,我们计划在九月2018年招收12000第九,十岁,并按照他们十年。 ABCD的研究目的是研究大脑如何变化随着儿童青少年和年轻的成年人,而这些变化是如何与某些行为。我管理的神经心理测试和面试,以及操作MRI扫描。

那你最喜欢你的工作吗?

我爱展示我们年轻的参与者的乐趣科学和研究如何能。孩子们有这么多伟大的问题,总是在我们正在做的事情这么感兴趣。我也爱我喜欢这些东西比我每天的工作日程更大的部分。 10年来,这项研究将有可能改变了我们观点和方法青少年大脑发育的方式。

How did Lewis & Clark prepare you for your job?

Lewis & Clark is the reason I have my job. As a sophomore, I received the Miller Award that allowed me to take the OHSU internship, and I was able to continue in the lab during the academic year doing an independent study under my advisor. I was offered my current position upon graduation. My success in the lab as an intern, and now as a full time research assistant, can also be credited to Lewis & Clark. My professors, classes, and peers taught me to think critically, question everything, and really think outside the box when solving problems. The classes I took for my psychology degree taught me how to read, digest, and also write research papers, which is a skill I utilize almost every day in my job. Over the four years I spent at L&C, I developed a passion for learning and a strong desire to continue my education.

你的事业目标是什么?

我想获得更多的临床经验,并最终应用到医学院。我很卫生政策感兴趣,弥合弱势群体患精神病行为保健和初级卫生保健之间的差距。最后,我想进入精神病学和朝向实现更全面的卫生保健体系与严重而持久的精神疾病个人的工作。
