I think I daily have an experience that the fellowship prepared me for.   Because of the flexibility of the fellowship, I was able to obtain my MPH in Policy and Administration.   So in addition to getting wonderful research mentorship, I also received some incredibly useful training in health policy as well as developed skills I use each day as to help run our organization.  I also made connections through TECT that have helped me even after I moved here to Florida.

Through TECT I had access to mentors both at UNC and Duke, the collaborative environment between the two educational institutions is unique and helps you see academics at its best.

Our mentors were a key to being successful in the program and also to having a lot of fun in the process.  They are really what makes the TECT fellowship the amazing opportunity and experience that it is.   This may sound cheesy, but I truly think being a part of the TECT fellowship was a life-changing experience.   I gained skills and confidence I never had before the fellowship.  I am very much inspired by them to this day.
