Summer Scholars Program
The Summer Scholars Program is a mentored research internship offered by the Department of Pediatrics of Eastern Virginia Medical School at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in Norfolk, Virginia. The competitive 11 week program is open to college seniors (rising or graduating) and first- or second-year graduate or medical students who are exploring potential careers in medical, biomedical, public health, or behavioral research.
Students chosen for the program will conduct a pre-selected research project, from start to finish, and present their project outcomes to the scientific community. Students are listed as co-investigators on their projects which are frequently published and presented on the national level. Formal classroom training and personalized application in research design, implementation, and publication make this summer experience a must for anyone considering a career in research.
