Pediatrics Summer Programs for Medical Students

The Department of Pediatrics at NYU Langone provides opportunities to medical students during the summer to augment their learning experiences.

Pediatrics Summer Research Fellowship

The Pediatrics Summer Research Fellowship, which takes place for eight weeks each summer, pairs each student with an investigator who focuses on clinical or basic science research in either general pediatrics or a pediatric subspecialty.

As part of the fellowship, opportunities also exist for experiences in clinical pediatrics. Students typically participate in clinical care within the division of their assigned mentor. Students can also request additional experiences in inpatient, outpatient, and emergency settings at various locations, including Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone and NYC Health + Hospitals/Bellevue.

The summer fellowship is geared toward first-year medical students, who participate during the summer between the first and second years. Students must be on track to complete their first year of medical studies by June to apply for this program. The program officially begins during the first week of July; however, some students choose to start earlier.

Stipends are available only to medical students attending NYU Grossman School of Medicine who are eligible for federal work–study funding.

To apply, please complete and submit the Pediatrics Summer Research Fellowship application. The application deadline is February 26, 2021. You may be requested to come in for an interview. Online applications are preferred, but you can also mail your application to the following address:
