Internship Experience: U.C. San Diego’s Moores Comprehensive Cancer Center
(Bowdoin News) – This summer, Lauren Skerritt ’14 has a grant from the Bowdoin College Alumni Council Internship Fund to intern at U.C. San Diego’s Moores Comprehensive Cancer Center. The center is known for a wide range of cancer care, and Skerritt is working in its radiation oncology department. Her grant, one of Bowdoin’s many donor-funded grants, was created by the Alumni Council to allow a student to take an unpaid internship in a career field of his or her choice.
Skerritt, who is from San Diego, Calif., is a mathematics and biology major at Bowdoin. After graduating, she plans to go to medical school to study oncology.
