Accelerating Clinical and Translational Research
The Indiana CTSI Summer Internship Program is a two-month educational program sponsored by the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute that supports talented high school, undergraduate and medical students interested in assisting faculty members in clinical and laboratory research.
The program provides funds for up to 26 medical students, eight undergraduate students and 20 high school students. Participants include medical students from the IU School of Medicine, undergrads from Indiana and Notre Dame universities, and high schools throughout the central Indiana region.
Program partners include the IU School of Medicine Student Research Program in Academic Medicine (SRPinAM), IUPUI Center for Research and Learning and Indianapolis Project SEED, a non-profit organization that provides economically disadvantaged students access to educational opportunities in the sciences.
Past participants, including high school students, have have seen their names included in prestigious medical journals, and many have gone on to careers as physicians, researchers, pharmacists and nursing doctorates, including a majority who've stayed in Indiana.To find out more about the program, read about the program's 2010 capstone event or meet a past participant.
