Musculoskeletal Research Center Summer Undergraduate Research Program

NYU Langone’s Musculoskeletal Research Center invites college students to participate in our summer internship program in musculoskeletal research. The purpose of the program is to give students who may be interested in pursuing careers in musculoskeletal research the opportunity to be exposed to an academic medical environment at a major research center. The program includes hands-on research, exposure to the practice of medicine, and participation in professional level and career seminars.

A nominal stipend is provided. Please note that participants are responsible for providing their own travel and lodging arrangements.
