World Pediatric Project is not your average internship. As a U.S. Referrals intern this past summer, I wasn't stuck behind a desk for 8 hours a day making copies or getting coffee. Instead, I was interpreting between English and Spanish during medical appointments, providing social support for parents whose children were undergoing lifesaving surgeries, and gaining invaluable life experience. Every day, I drove families to their appointments and surgeries at the Medical College of Virginia, the main hospital serving Richmond, VA, and the school where hundreds of VCU students complete their residencies and internships. Being immersed in this environment was a wonderful learning experience that provided me an introduction to the clinical and medical fields. As a double major in Spanish and Psychology, it can be difficult to find internships and opportunities that successfully combine my two majors. However, this position with WPP did just that. As an aspiring therapist, my work in the hospital setting, directly with the WPP families offered me crucial experience providing support for people going through a very difficult and frightening time. In addition, as a Spanish major, one of the most important and beneficial experiences for me during this internship was interpreting between the families and the doctors/nurses. My job as U.S. Referrals intern was to ensure that these appointments went as smoothly as possible, and that the WPP families felt comfortable and safe.
