The goal of the program is to engage scientific curiosity in the next
generation of scientists, challenging qualified college undergraduates
to consider basic science research-related careers and providing them
with initial experiences required to be competitive for science related
continued education and careers in the future. See the CDB Summer Internship Program
for more information. You may contact email@example.com with questions.
This is a program for rising sophomores and juniors who are interested in biomedical sciences and may be considering an M.D./Ph.D. program.

This conference is coordinated by OHSU's Center for Diversity & Multicultural Affairs. To register call 503-494-5657. Registration deadline is early February.
The Institute of Environmental Health (IEH) seeks interns interested in physical, chemical, and biological processes that affect human and environmental health. IEH includes the Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction (CMOP) and the Division of Environmental and Biomolecular Systems (EBS). Students with a background in biology, chemistry, environmental science, computer science, math, physics or engineering are encouraged to apply for interdisciplinary research opportunities. Interns interact with faculty, post-doctoral, doctoral and masters students while learning new skills and contributing to scientific research. Women and individuals from underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Contact Vanessa Green at email@example.com or (503) 346-3411 for more information.
The program is designed for talented students in their junior year from Concordia University, George Fox University, Lewis & Clark College, Linfield College, Pacific University, University of Portland, Warner Pacific College, and Willamette University who are interested in pursuing a career in biomedical research, particularly those who are considering graduate school or an M.D./Ph.D. program. Students participate in ongoing research projects with investigators at OHSU and are paid a stipend. Students who are already committed to a career involving only clinical practice, such as private practice physicians or dentists, are specifically discouraged from applying.

The Oregon National Primate Research Center invites college undergraduates who will enter either their junior or senior year of college in the Fall of 2013 and are interested in neuroscience, reproductive sciences, or infectious disease to apply for the ONPRC Summer Fellowship Program. Selected applicants will work as part of a research team in an established laboratory alongside a staff member whose research interests complement the student’s own.
The Summer Fellowship Program supports students in 8-week apprenticeships for which a $2400 is received (successful applicants who live out of state may be eligible for assistance with travel expenses). Principal Investigators in the Divisions of Neuroscience, Reproductive Sciences, and Pathobiology and Immunology oversee research programs related to high-priority medical needs that are expected to increase in importance and funding emphasis over the coming decades. These include research in neurodevelopment, neuroendocrinology, neurodegeneration, cancer, aging, mental illness, brain injury, addiction, obesity, reproductive health, immune response to infectious agents, and stem cells. Specific project details and application materials are available at here

Oregon AHEC offers the Rural Community Health Clerkship. The Rural Community Health Clerkship is a partnership between the Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine and the Statewide Area Health Education Centers Program. One of eight, five-week clerkships required of third- and some fourth-year medical students, it provides the opportunity to experience primary care as practiced in rural areas or with underserved populations in Oregon. Each student is supervised by a skilled primary care physician experienced in internal medicine, pediatrics or family medicine.
Oregon AHEC also offers the Oregon Rural Scholars Program (ORSP) in partnership with the Department of Family Medicine in the School of Medicine. The ORSP allows up to ten selected third year medical students to spend up to 14 weeks in a rural community, comprising the Family Medicine and Rural Community Health Clerkships and a procedural elective. This program is designed for students with a specific interest in a future rural practice.
Held every summer, the UCEDD Summer Internship Program provides opportunities for high school or early college students to gain experience in the disability field, develop transferrable skills, and learn about various career paths in health care. Interns will receive training on disability theory, practice, and advocacy, as well as support and guidance in career planning and networking. Interns will work 15-20 hours per week on a project at one of the Institute on Development and Disability centers, gaining experience in research, education, training, and dissemination. After developing their own personal goals for the internship, interns will participate in activities that align with their career interests such as informational interviews, clinical shadowing, Grand Rounds, and other OHSU activities. Interns will also participate in group tours and field trips to OHSU labs, clinics, and facilities.
This internship is designed for students who are interested in pursuing a career in health care, specifically with a focus on disability. The following students are strongly encouraged to apply:
- Students who experience a disability
- Students with siblings or family members who experience a disability
- Students from historically underrepresented populations in the health and science professions
- Students from socially and economically disadvantaged populations
The UCEDD SIP is a paid opportunity and runs June 13 – August 8, 2016. Applications will be available in late December 2015 and are due January 31, 2016. More information, including a link to the application, can be accessed at www.ohsu.edu/sip.
