Summer Clinical Research Internship at GW Hospital

GW clinical internshipThe Clinical Research Program offers students interested in research and medicine/public health the opportunity to complete a summer research internship in our department.  The goals of the internship are to familiarize students with different study designs as well as teach students how to screen and enroll patients in studies and collect data in a busy, dynamic environment.  The clinical research projects that students will be involved in will range from simple patient surveys to complex randomized controlled trials.  The summer research internship consists of working clinical research shifts in the emergency department (ED) setting and attending bi-weekly research seminars by different ED faculty.

The Summer Research Internship program provides college students with the opportunity to participate in the Department’s clinical research projects.  Students are exposed to various research methods and fundamental elements of clinical medicine by spending time collecting data and enrolling eligible patients into the studies.  We are seeking outstanding undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in medicine, health sciences, clinical research, or other health- related fields.  The summer research interns will work on studies that will provide them with exposure to the spectrum of clinical research including data collection and entry, patient interaction, and utilization of innovative research methods employed in the Emergency Department.  In addition to collecting data, summer research interns will be exposed to the process of designing research studies including issues of human subject protection, data analysis, and publication.

Applications will be considered beginning on November 1. Check out further info about applying.
