Alexis and Michelle landed paid summer internships with the Clinic after succeeding in a highly competitive process that included a written application and personal interview with Clinic professionals. In recent years, NDCL students have won 30 internship appointments at the Clinic—more than any other Catholic high school in the Clinic's market area.

Alexis studied the correlation between ischemic mitral regurgitation (IMR) and patients' prognosis for recovery. IMR is a leakage of the mitral valve that frequently follows a heart attack.

The Cleveland Clinic Civic Education Department's clinic-based programs give northeast Ohio middle and high school students the opportunity to learn and work alongside world-renowned caregivers at the Clinic's Main Campus, regional hospitals, and family health centers. Through their experiences in these programs, students connect with healthcare fields and careers, develop their 21st century skill-set through hands-on learning opportunities, and discover real-world applications for their academic knowledge.
