Summer Undergraduate Research Internship
Join Us: June 1 – August 7, 2020
The Houston Methodist Institute for Academic Medicine offers an unparalleled 10-week summer student program that matches faculty members with medical students and college undergraduates as they focus on a single research project. Students also attend weekly didactic lectures given by mentors, invited speakers and other leaders. The internship consists of three programs: the Summer Undergraduate Research Internship (for undergraduate students interested in translational research), the Rosenberg Summer Surgical Fellowship (for undergraduate students interested in surgical shadowing), and the High School Research Internship (for high school students over the age of 16 interested in translational research). You are encouraged to review each program and its requirements before applying.
