Emergency Medicine Research Associate Internship

 

Upcoming Events

 

While we provide an incredibly immersive clinical experience to our students, it means nothing if we don't help them find the next step beyond our internship. We are always looking for a chance to give our students more. The RA Program invites speakers from different fields, like Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Podiatry and more. In addition our speakers are also in different stages within those fields (students, recent graduates, veterans of that field, etc) So we really give our students a clear picture of all their paths so they can make an informed decision when they decide what to pursue.
