Rising junior and senior college students are invited to take advantage of a 8-week paid internship program. Students engage in interactive real-life learning covering the topics: Evaluation and management in the outpatient setting, intraoperative techniques, research design, data analysis, and medical presentations. As part of the internship, students work directly with staff surgeons where they gain hands-on experience related to daily issues as well as health policy concerns. They will have the opportunity to engage in research projects, which will reinforce students' research skills. Students have an opportunity to present their work to Departmental Grand Rounds at the end of the internship experience.
