MEDICAL STUDENT RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES
LSUHSC Medical Student Summer Internship Program
Dr. Paula Gregory directs a summer internship program that is sponsored by the School of Medicine at LSUHSC. The program is designed to provide medical students with an experience in clinical and translational research during their summer break. The summer program is critical to students who are considering careers in academic medicine, because it allows them to see first-hand what research entails. They are exposed to the excitement, rewards, trials and tribulations of biomedical research. Approximately 15 medical students spend up to 8 weeks in this program each summer.
