Undergraduate Surgical Internship
Medical and graduate schools highly value extracurricular and scholarly activities when reviewing applicants. FSIE undergraduate level internships focus on curriculum vitae (resume) building activities. Interns will shadow physicians and/or nurses in the clinic and operating room, receive surgeon lead didactics and participate in hands-on skills labs in the FSIE research laboratory. Interns will also work on research projects tailored to their level of experience. Most undergraduate level interns will have the opportunity to be a part of clinical research projects that will lead to authorship on manuscripts published in peer-reviewed journals. Many of our undergraduates have presented their projects at national meetings.
The formal Summer Surgical Internship is a 6 week intensive program with a set curriculum. Many students extend the formal 6 week program to stay on and do more independent research depending on their schedules and availability.
