Health Experience Opps

Summer Clinical Research Opp at Children’s National Medical Center

children's national logoChildren’s National Medical Center is accepting applications for their clinical research summer internship program (unpaid). You must:

  • Be able to work no less than 10 hours per week
  • Complete the entire 12 week program
  • Have competitive grades and a strong interest in research or healthcare
  • Be a US citizen or have legal status to work in the US

The program is meant to represent a unique opportunity for students to directly participate in the performance of clinical research, while also observing overall ED operations and interacting with physicians, nurses, and other health care personnel.

  • Students will gain research experience working in the emergency department that will serve them in their decision-making in developing a career in public health and/or medicine
  • Students will be exposed to the practical application of research to provide critical context and texture to research theory they may have received in the classroom.
  • The CNMC ED (CPPER and WBCARN) offers a broad diversity of research from basic observational studies to complex randomized controlled trials thereby exposing students to the full spectrum of research applications in a single clinical setting.
  • It has been shown that students involved in research activities during training are more likely to continue a career in research when mentorship has been established. Motivated students will have the opportunity to develop mentor/mentee relationship with faculty and clinical staff which, given appropriate motivation on the part of each individual student, could result in graduate school/professional recommendation letters from faculty and the opportunity to develop an individual research project and/or work in an externship capacity with an individual faculty member on an existing research protocol.

Interested students should send their resume, unofficial transcripts, two reference letters, and cover letter to Bobbe Thomas at tbthomas@cnmc.org. Please see here for all the relevant details.
