Undergraduate students entering the summer before their final year or semester of college participate in an intensive, 9-week internship designed to provide research experiences and mentorship for students interested in biomedical research. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, interns complete an independent research project and present their findings at a competitive poster session. The skills and career guidance provided through SURP help propel interns into graduate and medical programs across the country.
