Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Clinical Research Internships with UIP

Internships in the Medical, Dental and Health-Related Professions are still available through The University Internship Program (UIP). UIP internships combine academic instruction and work experience in an applied setting under the supervision and counseling of UIP faculty members, liaisons, and internship site supervisors/mentors. UIP interns earn four credits each semester. 

We are recruiting for 2 Pharmacy Program Interns for the 2017 UVA 8 week summer session.   The interns will be active in many areas of a fully licensed pharmacy.

We are also recruiting for a Clinical Research Intern.  The purpose of this internship is to introduce undergraduate students to the field of clinical research projects within the School of Medicine.  This is a 3 semester internship opportunity.  Interns will begin with an 8 week summer session which is an intensive learning and preparatory training time that will provide opportunities for many observational experiences (such as observing in the operating room, procedure areas, or clinic areas), weekly journal clubs for all UIP interns, and learning a broad overview of clinical research. This will continue into the 2017 fall semester, with the goal of the intern being able to have some independent projects that would continue into the 2018 spring semester. Interns will be assigned a primary mentor in one of the clinical research offices at UVA. 

Additionally, we are looking for 3 Dental Interns for the 2017 UVA 8 week summer session.  The interns will take part in dental clinics, have the opportunity to observe resident and faculty dentists, provide chair-side assistance and administrative support and related duties.
