Additionally, students spend a total of three Fridays at the STAR Center for medical simulations, professional development workshops, and research project work. Upon the conclusion of the internship, the students at each hospital present their research project to hospital staff and members of the of the leadership team. This program operates throughout the summer months and applications are available in early Spring semester.
