Jharna Jahnavi, a Kimberton Waldorf 2015 graduate, spent the summer working as a clinical research intern at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as a direct extension of her academic interests and another step on her path to a career in medicine. The pre-med biology major, who also minors in neuroscience and health studies at Haverford College has a deep interest in neuroscience and brain development.
Her interdisciplinary work has allowed her to work with neurologists, neurosurgeons, cardiothoracic surgeons, and other healthcare professionals, post-doc physicists, computer scientists, medical students, and other undergraduates. Jahnavi’s coursework at Haverford encompasses departments not just across the sciences, but also across the liberal arts, and she finds the lab environment to be similarly multifaceted.
