Summer Internship

The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology offers a seven week summer internship for up to five medical students following their first year in medical school. Each student has a tailored experience to explore one or several areas of pathology. The rotations differ with the interests of each student. A student may decide to rotate in two sections, for example surgical pathology and neuropathology or hematopathology and transfusion medicine. Alternatively it is possible to explore three different experiences during the seven weeks. Also, a student may decide to combine a clinical rotation (for example hematopathology or neuropathology) with a research project. Areas of pathology popular with previous interns include

  • transfusion medicine
  • surgical pathology
  • neuropathology
  • dermatopathology
  • hematopathology
  • molecular pathology
  • autopsy pathology.

The department offers a stipend of $5,000 for each intern.
