Hartford Hospital Summer Student Research Fellowship
The Summer Student Research Fellowship Program offers a unique clinical research opportunity for college students pursuing careers in medicine.
The fellowship is designed exclusively for pre-medical students (who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents) completing either their junior or senior year in college. It offers the student an introduction to research methodology, patient treatment, and ethical issues in medicine as well as exposure to a broad spectrum of health care providers within a large community teaching hospital.
Research investigations are conducted under the guidance of full-time physicians in the Departments of Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine/Trauma, Medicine (including the Divisions of Ambulatory Care, Cardiology, Epidemiology and Infectious Disease), Neurosurgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology (Perinatology), Oncology and Surgery (Transplantation and Vascular Surgery), Fetal Maternal Medicine, Urology, Surgery (Transplantation and Vascular) and Respiratory Care.
Each student is given the opportunity to observe ambulatory and inpatient diagnosis and treatment procedures in a variety of specialty settings, to be exposed to different physician specialist role models and to interact with medical students and residents.
All decisions regarding candidates will be announced in early April.
The criteria used for selecting a fellow are: pre-medical college student completing their junior or senior year by May; college grades (GPA 3.5 or higher); participation in leadership/service activities at school and in the community, as well as interests conveyed to the interviewer at the time of the scheduled interview.
Sixteen fellowships are awarded annually to qualified pre-medical students who will have completed their junior or senior year of college in the spring. The award for the ten week fellowship is $1,500.
Parking and dormitory housing is provided as needed.
