Science benefits from diversity, and we recognize that our field is lacking in this area. The Surgery Clinical Research Continuum offers underrepresented high school students first-hand opportunities to experience the rewards of a career in science and medicine. Diversity in science leads to better innovations for our patients and our colleagues, and we are looking to help the next generation.
The Department of Surgery is known for providing cutting-edge patient care in an environment that promotes novel clinical investigation for the purpose of improving care. This internship is designed to encourage participants to consider careers in academic healthcare. Students will develop an introductory-level knowledge related to clinical research while having the opportunity to engage with different health care professionals across the field.
