UCEDD Summer Internship Program
Held every summer, the University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (UCEDD) Summer Internship Program provides opportunities for high school or early college students to gain experience in the disability ﬁeld, develop transferable skills, and learn about various career paths in one or more of the following areas: research, teaching/training, community relations/outreach/development, medical clinics, computer science, behavioral psychology, public health, and social work. Additionally, interns will receive training on disability theory, practice, and advocacy, as well as support and guidance in career planning and networking.
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.
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
Students will be expected to:
- Attend an internship orientation (June 13 - 15, 2018)
- Commit to attending the entire 8 weeks of the internship (June 13 - August 4, 2018)
- Work a minimum of 24 hours per week
- Attend regularly scheduled seminars, meetings and field trips

Interns will be eligible to receive a stipend of $1800 for living expenses, transportation, educational expenses and other costs.
