Summer Undergraduate Research Internship
The best way to lure the brightest young minds to a career in biomedical research is to give them the opportunity to work in the laboratories of some of the nation's top scientists. Houston Methodist offers a 10-week summer student program for college undergraduates and medical students. The program matches students with faculty mentors in laboratories and focuses on a single research project. During this time, students attend required weekly didactic lectures given by the mentors and invited speakers.
The program also provides numerous opportunities for social interaction and networking, including a welcome reception, a sporting event and a retreat at the end of the program during which students present their work. A $5,000 stipend could be awarded to cover living expenses while enrolled in the program.
Some students continue working with their mentors after the end of the program to see the project to completion and co-author a resulting publication. Students may also return for additional research internships or find other research opportunities through the program.
