I was able to learn a whole new set of skills due to the wonderful support of the leads. There were good days were I learned so much and there were challenging days were I learned even more. Overall, the experience was great and I will miss working with the clients and staff.

I have had a great experience as a clinical intern at ANL. Everyone since day one has been friendly and helpful, I never felt “new” or like a “rookie” with all the help I received. I like the volume and diversity of clients I was able to service and get a full experience for my education.
