Department of Pediatrics Summer Student Internship Program
OverviewThe Dept. of Pediatrics Summer Student Internship Program is an intensive 10-week program designed for students to gain valuable experience in the field of pediatric research. These internships are laboratory research-based positions.
Students will work on a project under the advisement of a faculty member. Additionally, students will meet with other interns twice a week in a group setting. Students will take turns presenting journal articles from pediatric-related scientific literature. Students will also learn about research that is ongoing in the Dept. of Pediatrics.
At the end of the 10-week program, students are expected to present the results of their projects at a poster session. This opportunity allows students to talk about their results with faculty members and to brainstorm about the next steps to take with their projects.
