Summer Internship in Medically Oriented Research
ROSE summer interns are matched with an appropriate faculty advisor, based on mutual research interest. The advisor and intern design a specific research project within the context of the research focus of the advisor's laboratory. Selection of the research is biased toward projects which can result in a student-authored publication.
During the ROSE summer, students can expect to spend approximately 40 hours each week working on their research project. The length of the internship is eight to ten weeks and can be clinical, translational, or bench. Every attempt will be made to provide opportunities in areas where interest is expressed.
Duration of the Internship:
The first summer internship lasts eight weeks, and the second summer internship lasts ten weeks. Students begin their first summer internship in mid June and continue through early August. The second summer internship can begin at a mutually convenient time for the student and research mentor.
Funding for Internship:
Students are provided with a stipend of $2500 for the first summer and $2750 for the second summer internship. This stipend is provided to help cover living expenses. The stipend is taxable.
Housing for internship:
Specific information about room and board is provided upon acceptance to the program; however, students are responsible for making their own housing arrangements.
Throughout the summer and during the school year, every student will maintain contact with a UCCOM faculty advisor and student affairs advisor.
