Research Internship for National High School Students

The Research Internship for National High School Students program at Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar offers ambitious young researchers, aged 16 years and above, the opportunity to spend 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 includes basic introductory sessions about different aspects of research management. The program’s sessions include:

  • Research Operation
  • Laboratory Management
  • Grants Management
  • Research Compliance
  • 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 duration of the practical training depends on the program the intern chooses from the two options below:
