Native American Summer Research Internship
The Native American Research Internship is a dynamic summer research opportunity for Native American Undergraduate Junior and Senior students who are interested in Health Science research. The internship is located at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is a 10-week, paid summer internship, funded by the National Institutes of Health. The internship focus is to provide Native American students an outstanding laboratory or clinically based research experience working alongside world class research faculty at the University of Utah. The goal of the internship is to support the academic, career, and personal development of Native American students who are interested in Health Science careers. Each student will participate in approximately 40 hours/week of internship activities. Approximately 30 hours/week will be for research related activities, and approximately 10 hours/week will be for academic/professional development. Students will work closely with research mentors as well as Native American faculty and staff mentors, develop meaningful relationships within the Health Science and Native American research communities, attend a Native American Health conference, and have opportunities to shadow physicians at their clinical practice. Students will also gain insightful knowledge in the areas of: graduate/medical school preparation, career development, additional academic opportunities, community engagement, professionalism, creating scientific posters, and presenting research material. Additionally, students who successfully complete a summer internship have the option of participating again during the following summer, essentially being able to participate for two summers. The Native American Research Internship provides students a stipend as well as housing at the University of Utah. Both University of Utah students and non-University of Utah undergraduate students are encouraged to apply. No previous research experience is required.
