The CTSI 500 Stars Summer Internship Program offers 6-8 weeks of hands-on experiences working with faculty researchers and research teams conducting real-life studies, as well as hands-on professional experiences working with CTSI regional partners and their research teams in research ‘support’ settings. In addition, Program leadership works with students and mentors to offer placements in our ‘Summer’ SMART (Students Modeling a Research Topic) Teams sites; as well as in our Summer ‘Advanced’ SMART Teams sites. The primary goal of the SMART Teams experience is to introduce students to translational science by building upon laboratory research to better understand clinical and community impact of disease within a patient population. Internship sites may include research labs, research support settings, clinical care settings, community sites, and much more. Participating students are offered stipends upon completion of the summer Program.
