This internship provides a rising second-year medical student with experience in pediatric primary care clinical research with a focus in asthma.
You will be responsible for enrolling patients and managing the database in an asthma research study and participate in other ongoing studies.
You’ll be taught the national guidelines on asthma assessment and management, similar to what is taught to third-year medical students and pediatric residents. You will join Department of Family Medicine research students in their workshop series on how to conduct primary care research.
You will give an oral presentation on your research findings to department faculty and fellow students at the end of the summer.
You will also prepare a poster for the school’s Medical Student Research Forum.
There are also opportunities to participate in clinical care in a general pediatric clinic.
We typically accept one student per year. Please contact Lucy Holmes, MD, MPH, before submitting an application to be sure a position is available.
Rising second-year Jacobs School medical students interested in pediatric research are eligible.
