CWRU Heart, Lung & Blood Diversity Internship
The short-term Heart, Lung & Blood diversity research internship program sponsored by the National Institutes of Health at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine for over a decade is once again offered for Summer 2016. These internships have traditionally been offered to undergraduates and medical students underrepresented in biomedical science including African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, as well as to those with disabilities or who have experienced significant disadvantages.
Prior interns have actively participated in laboratory or clinical research studies during the summer with faculty mentors at Case Western Reserve, University Hospitals of Cleveland and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, among our affiliates. Many have presented their work at major national meetings and have gone on to academic careers.
Students are paid for two months ($3500) participation with additional pro-rated stipend for longer periods. Start and end dates for the minimum 8 week program but are flexible. Additional support for economy travel and partial funds for dormitory housing are available for those from outside the Cleveland area.
This note is to particularly encourage first year medical students to consider the program and apply online (http://casemed.case.edu/omp/SummerResearch.cfm) before March 1, 2016. The Steering Committee will select applicants and work to match their interests with sponsoring faculty members. After the match is made, the mentor approves the fellow’s research project and supervises the student during the summer period. While participating in the program, students are expected to attend a weekly luncheon seminar on aspects of cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematological and sleep disorders research specifically designed for them and typically have had orientation in our research-related residency programs. At the termination of the summer, the student must present a poster or written summary and short oral oral presentation.

American Pediatric Society & Society for Pediatric Research
Student Research Program
The SPR and APS offer a medical student research training program to encourage gifted medical students to consider careers in research related to pediatrics. This program is specifically designed for students seeking a research opportunity at an institution OTHER THAN THEIR OWN MEDICAL SCHOOL.
Students selected to the program are able to choose or are assigned to leading research laboratories. Currently, our Directory of Laboratories lists research opportunities at more than 300 laboratories in the United States and Canada. Each research experience allows the student to spend two to three months at 40 hours per week in a research environment. The program provides students with a stipend of $58.83/day (as of 2010) for a maximum stipend of $4,353.
The APS and SPR welcome applications from all qualified candidates and encourage under-represented groups to apply.

For Students Interested in the Student Research Program:
2016 Application Deadline:
Boston, MA - The Multicultural Affairs Office at Massachusetts General Hospital
Deadline for applications is February 2016.
The Summer Research Trainee Program (SRTP), which was founded in 1992, attracts college and medical students from around the nation. The goal of this program is to inspire and develop students who are underrepresented in medicine (URM)* to consider academic medicine and research careers by immersing them in cutting-edge research opportunities. Fifteen students, selected from a nationwide competition, join SRTP each summer. Students are assigned to specific Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) laboratories or clinical sites where they undertake original research projects under the mentorship of an MGH investigator. Investigation opportunities exist over a broad range of disciplines, including clinical, basic science, health policy and health services research. Assignments are carefully considered and are made with the student's career interest in mind. In addition to the research experience, students will gain knowledge through weekly didactic seminars, both at the MGH and at Harvard Medical School, and have opportunities for clinical shadowing.
Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered for this program, and allow enough mailing time for the materials to arrive before the deadline.
