The Harris Neuroscience Internship provides funding for 6-8 weeks each summer to support a high school student (rising grade 10-12, must be 16 years old at beginning of internship) in completing scholarly activities in Neuroscience and Neurosurgery focused on topics related to gender and/or health care disparities in the neurosciences.
In addition to the scholarly project interns are expected to:
- Attend a weekly Rehabilitation Research Meeting focused on theory and methods in medical education and research under the supervision of the Deputy Chief of Staff/Director of Brain Injury and Defense and Veteran Brain Injury Center Senior Scientist.
- Participate in at least one activity/project of their choice during the fellowhship year that promotes increased engagement with girls and/or under-represented minorities.
The program will provide $1000 support to each selected intern as well as administrative and project support through the Department of Neurosurgery.
