My Experience with Pediatric Mental Health Research

Prasiddha Parthasarathy

Abstract


As a graduate of The Woodlands School in Mississauga, Ontario, one of the major highlights of my grade 12 year was participating in the Online Research Co-op Program in the fall. After being introduced to pediatrics from a previous summer research experience, my curiosity was piqued and I was keen on further immersing myself in research in order to explore the eld of pediatrics in greater depth. I was introduced to the Online Research Co- op Program by a teacher at school, as an opportunity for students to enhance their understanding of a field that they were interested in. Accordingly, I envisioned this program as a perfect platform for me to explore my passion for pediatrics while simultaneously gaining invaluable research experience.
