  • Penn State Hershey College of Medicine
    • We are pleased to announce The Penn State College of Medicine Summer Undergraduate Research Internship Program for 2012 (SURIP 2012). The program brings undergraduates to our campus for a “summer-immersion” in biological research and an orientation to a career in biological sciences. The typical intern will be between their Sophomore and Junior year or between their Junior and Senior year of undergraduate studies. Students who will have a BA or BS prior to the start of the internship on June 1 should not apply. SURIP 2012 would be most appropriate for students considering applying to PhD programs in the Biological/Biomedical Sciences and is not intended for students who will apply to Medical School. There is no clinical shadowing component to the internship. Integral to our program are twice weekly research/career seminars, a capstone presentation experience, and additional introductory experiences related to the professional culture of biological research. Research interns will have the opportunity to live on our campus, and will receive a stipend of $3,000 each to cover their living expenses during the summer. The majority of our interns choose to live on campus and those that do so find living on campus a very positive experience. In light of the fact that the budget for the SURIP program does not permit us to cover the housing costs beyond the first month, we encourage you to make interested students aware of any small grant programs at your institution that might help interns offset the costs of on campus housing. For more information and an online application form you may access our website athttp://www.pennstatehershey.org/web/summerresearch/home. APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS OPENS ON DECEMBER 1. We encourage you to place a link to our program in the appropriate departmental web sites and to forward this information to a career services/internship office at your institution to distribute this announcement as efficiently as possible. If you are aware of undergraduates who would benefit from this experience, please inform them of this program’s availability. APPLICATION SUBMISSIONS CLOSES AT 12 PM ON FEBRUARY 6, 2011.
