The Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation (MCRF) is currently accepting applications for the 2017 Summer Research Internship Program. The primary goal of the program, which started in 1974, is to provide a mentored, hands-on research experience for college undergraduate, graduate, dental, and medical students considering a career in research.

Students work with research scientists on an independent project and contribute to all aspects of the research process. Students also lead a journal club discussion, prepare an abstract describing their research, and present their research findings at the annual Research Symposium on August 10th. Opportunities to attend medical Grand Rounds, scientific seminars, and shadow clinicians are also available.

Applicants must be a full- or part-time continuing college or university junior or graduate student (including graduating seniors intending to go on to graduate/medical/dental school). Students are expected to work full-time for the duration of the program. In addition to earning an hourly wage, student interns are provided housing in Marshfield.

Research areas include Biomedical Informatics, Clinical/Laboratory Research, Cultural/Medical Anthropology, Epidemiology, Genetics, Interactive Clinical Design, and Oral and Systemic Health.

For information about specific projects available this summer or to read more about the application criteria, please visit the Summer Research Internship Program website.

Application deadline is January 16, 2017.
