The Center for Reproductive Medicine at Cleveland Clinic offers a unique, highly integrated research internship to pre-med and medical students. This program strives to expose students to the fundamentals of clinical research as
well as provide training in scientific writing and offer shadowing opportunities.
The program's goal is to encourage students to consider a career in medicine, whether in the reproductive sciences or another specialty of their choosing. To this end, we have designed the summer internship to offer students a wide range of high quality experiences. During this eight-week program, participants will work alongside reproductive scientists and clinicians on interesting research projects in a real laboratory setting; interact with reproductive endocrinologists, gynecologists, male infertility specialists and urologists and observe them in clinics or surgery; participate in the writing of research articles, systematic reviews and/or invited book chapters in the field of reproductive endocrinology, assisted reproduction and/or male and female infertility; and participate in writing research articles.
Students will develop an understanding of how reproductive research is conducted. Participants will also learn how to present research results in departmental meetings, prepare and present PowerPoint talks at research conferences, perform various data compilation and analysis techniques, and hone their public speaking skills
Our faculty consists of leading experts, physicians and surgeons in reproductive sciences from around the world who work together to provide students with intensive exposure to the global application of research. More than 100 students from universities and colleges all over the United States have participated in Summer Internships with the Center. We have welcomed students from Princeton, Duke, University of Pennsylvania and Brown University among others.
