Research Internship for National College Students

The Research Internship for National College Students at Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar (WCM-Q) offers young ambitious researchers, 18 years and above, the opportunity to spend their time learning about Biomedical Research in a challenging and dynamic research environment.

The programs are divided into two main components:
 

A. Biomedical Research Management Basics

The Biomedical Research Management Basics component consists of several modules aimed to give interns an introduction to Biomedical Research. This component aims to provide college students with the background information that would support them during the Biomedical Research Practical Training component of the program. Below is a list of the different modules included in this component:

  • Research Operation
  • Laboratory Management
  • Grants Management
  • Research Integrity
  • Clinical Management
  • Professional skills
     

B. Biomedical Research Management Practical Training

The practical training gives interns insight into a real employee’s life. Trainees are expected to apply hands-on knowledge gained during the Biomedical Research Management Basics component of the program during their practical training. This component aims to help interns experience training in an actual research environment.


The period of the practical training depends on the program the intern chooses from below:
