Each year, the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery hosts 15-30 talented high school and undergraduate students in our research laboratories. During their 7-week internship, students master basic lab techniques, present their scientific discoveries to colleagues in oral and poster presentations, and join research teams led by experienced (PhD level) mentors who dedicate invaluable time to inspire and guide them on their first steps towards a successful career in science.
nternships last for seven weeks, from mid-June through the 1st. wk. of August, and are awarded to outstanding high school, and undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers in the biomedical/biological sciences to work on a research project that entails exposure to the latest biochemical, molecular, and analytical techniques in a given field.
