Emergency Medicine Volunteer Research Internship
The Volunteer Research Internship Program in Emergency Medicine provides opportunities for academically accomplished undergraduate students and recent graduates who are seeking both research experience and clinical exposure. Research interns are immersed in various aspects of academic medicine including clinical research, performance improvement initiatives, patient advocacy, and hospital administration. Participation in each of these activities gives Interns insight into various aspects of the healthcare field. Volunteer Research Interns rotate through shifts at both North Shore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Medical Center, exposing them to the different operations of two unique emergency departments. The interns work directly with the academic associates, and indirectly with physicians, nurses, administrators and other hospital personnel.
