The Surgery Clinical Research Experiences for High School Students Program offers minority students first hand opportunities to experience the rewards of an academic medical career which include providing cutting-edge patient care in an environment that promotes novel clinical investigation for the purpose of improving care. The program is designed to encourage participants to consider careers in surgery with a clinical research component. Students will develop an introductory-level knowledge base regarding fundamental issues related to clinical research and balancing a research career. The program accepts applications from students interested in a 6-week internship during the summer prior to their senior year of high school.
The Surgery Clinical Research Experiences for High School Students Program involves a close collaboration with the University of Wisconsin’s Precollege Enrichment Opportunity for Learning Excellence (PEOPLE). PEOPLE is a pre-college pipeline for students of color and low-income students.
This program is supported by a grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the UW Department of Surgery.
