Summer Undergraduate Programs at Penn State College of Medicine in
We are pleased to announce The Penn State College of Medicine Summer
Undergraduate Research Internship Programs for 2013. These programs bring
undergraduates to our campus for a ³summer-immersion² in biological
research and an orientation to a career in biological sciences. Any
student that will not earn a BS or BA by May 2013 is welcome to apply,
although for the SURIP, the typical intern will be between their Sophomore
and Senior year of undergraduate studies. The SURIP would be most
appropriate for students considering applying to PhD programs in the
Biological/Biomedical Sciences and is not intended for students who will
apply to medical school. There is no clinical shadowing component to the
Our goals are to provide a meaningful educational experience for
undergraduates to prepare them for careers in cutting edge fields and to
increase the pool of students considering graduate education in the life
sciences. Participating faculty have a strong interest in mentoring young
scholars as an integral part of their academic experience. Each student
accepted into these programs will be matched to one of these faculty
mentors for a ten-week laboratory research experience.
Integral to our programs are twice weekly research/career seminars, a
capstone presentation experience, and additional introductory experiences
related to the professional culture of biological research. Research
interns will have the opportunity to live on our campus, and will receive
a stipend to cover their living expenses during the summer. The majority
of our interns choose to live on campus and those that do so find living
on campus a very positive experience. In light of the fact that the
budget for several of the programs does not permit us to cover the housing
costs beyond the first month, we encourage you to make interested students
aware of any small grant programs at your institution that might help
interns offset the costs of on campus housing.
For more information and an online application form you may access our
website at http://www.pennstatehershey.org/web/summerresearch/home.
APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS OPENS ON DECEMBER 12. We encourage you to place a
link to our program in the appropriate departmental web sites and to
forward this information to a career services/internship office at your
institution to distribute this announcement as efficiently as possible.
If you are aware of undergraduates who would benefit from this experience,
please inform them of this programıs availability. The SURIP
APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS CLOSES AT 12 PM ON FEBRUARY 11, 2013.
