Vascular/Cardiothoracic Surgery Research Internship

The Division of Vascular Surgery is recruiting driven, independent, and meticulous, university students and postgraduates with an interest in the medical field to join their clinical research program. Clinical Research Interns support the research staff with their ongoing industry, federally-funded, and investigator-initiated clinical trials. Interns assist with candidate screening and during trial patient visits. There are also opportunities to work with residents, fellows, and Vascular Surgery faculty on prospective and chart review studies.

To find out more about this opportunity and others, please visit the Open Opportunities section.


The Office of Visitors & Volunteers connects potential volunteers to various opportunities, orients them to the complex OHSU environment, and guides them through the volunteer registration process. This program also links Research, Academic, and Central Services departments to interested volunteers.
