World Scholars Academy medical internships provide students ages 15-18 with the exclusive opportunity to work jointly with a world-leading medical researcher. On your internship you will advance the boundaries of knowledge in a state-of-the-art issue in medicine, including epidemiology, nutrition, and neurochemistry, while coauthoring an original research paper in collaboration with other student colleagues and under the guidance of your expert mentor.
Deepen your understanding of medicine while acquiring practical research skills and hands-on experience into what it is like to undertake advanced study in this discipline. Become a published author when you submit your completed research paper to our open-access academic journal or an external scholarly publication.
World Scholars Academy internship programs are an exceptional opportunity to demonstrate your unique talents, substantiate your commitment to excellence, and individuate yourself from peers so you can stand out when applying to top universities.
During your internship you will learn specialist research techniques, survey the extant literature in the field, and conduct original research on a contemporary medical topic. You will contribute your own ideas to the project's successful completion, and will develop technical skills and practical know-how to excel in medicine. Your final paper will be reviewed by your mentor and submitted to either our open-access academic journal or another scholarly publication.
Internships take place on either Saturday or Sunday over four weeks, allowing you to participate in an internship during your normal school year or simultaneously with a World Scholars Academy summer course. Interns should expect to spend a minimum of three hours outside of their live contact time each week to complete their research project. World Scholars Academy medical internships include:
• Collaborative group work
• Individualized feedback and academic guidance
• Co-authored research paper submitted for publication
• Certificate of completion
World Scholars Academy welcomes ambitious and inquisitive students from around the world. Please note that places on World Scholars Academy medical internship programs are extremely limited and currently listed research topics may not recur.
