The Summer Scholars Program is a mentored research internship offered by EVMS Pediatrics 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 preselected 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. This summer experience includes formal classroom training and personalized application in research design, implementation and publication and can greatly benefit those considering a career in research.
The application form and all supporting documentation for students must be in our hands by January 31, 2019.
