If I wanted to pursue a career in psychiatry, what type of high school internships should I participate in?

Hi, I am a sophomore from Boston Collegiate Charter School. I am really interested in being a psychiatrist but I am not sure how to get myself out there to begin networking now. My school participates in a 2-week internship as part of our graduation requirements, and I interested in securing a placement that would be a strong stepping stone for a career in psychiatry. #college #psychiatry #pyschology
