We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the
2015 Summer/Fall Opportunity for Achievement in Research-Minority Health and
Health Disparities (SOAR-MHHD) Research Internship Program. The program is
aimed at engaging, recruiting, and training highly qualified undergraduate
students from underrepresented minority and other disparity populations, from
local universities, into minority health and health disparities research
careers. This expanded opportunity includes a full-time summer and part-time
fall semester experience. Attached is a letter and flier announcement with
The Georgetown-Howard Universities Center of Excellence for Health
Disparities (CEHD) and Center for Clinical and Translational Research
(GHUCCTS) are jointly sponsoring the program.
The internship will bring together undergraduate students from diverse
background and interests in the Washington, DC metro area to create a rich
mix of interns from across disciplinary backgrounds with different career
goals. Research interns will participate in multi-disciplinary research
projects of senior investigators who will also serve as mentors and role
models. They will also participate in didactic sessions, discussion groups,
journal clubs, and grand rounds.
The application deadline is January 31, 2015. The program dates are June 1,
2015 through November 20, 2015.
