Deadline approaching: Honors College partners with MUSC Dept. of Surgery to launch summer internship program for aspiring medical scientists

The Honors College is teaming up with the MUSC College of Medicine’s Department of Surgery to create a formative new summer internship opportunity for honors students considering a career in academic medicine.

The PASS (Pipeline for Aspiring Surgical Students) summer internship program will provide 3 honors interns with an immersive 10-week experience focused on laboratory and clinical research and designed to prepare students for a career in academic medicine, all under the mentorship of Department of Surgery faculty.

As part of this partnership, students will also participate in the newly created Honors Summer Enrichment Program, which will enhance their internship experience through stipend funding, supplemental workshops, and peer-to-peer collaboration. Following the internship, students will present on their work at the the 2021 MUSC Research Day in November.

Applications are due Friday, March 5. For more information and application details, click below.

PASS Interns will participate simultaneously in the Honors Summer Enrichment Program, which will provide them with a stipend for living expenses up to $4000 (participation in the Honors Summer Enrichment Program is required of all PASS interns).

Who Should Apply:

This opportunity is ideal for aspiring medical scientists considering a career in academic medicine (not just in surgical fields). For those thinking about pursuing an MD/PhD or MD/MS, this is a great chance to gain practical experience and bolster your application credentials.

To be considered, applicants must be a rising junior or rising senior currently in good standing within the Honors College.

Statement should discuss academic and career goals and explain, in specific and persuasive terms, the importance of the knowledge and skill gained from participation in the PASS program to academic and career development. Prior research experience should also be discussed. Note: If the student is intending to enroll in summer courses or be employed, he/she must describe how course work, employment and any other commitments will be balanced with the PASS program expectations. Students are not permitted to enroll in more than one course during the project period.

2.) Apply to the Honors Summer Enrichment Program

Students who participate in the PASS program must also participate in the Honors Summer Enrichment Program, which requires a separate application. Details about how to apply can be found here. The application deadline for the summer enrichment program is also Friday, March 5.

COMPANY

LendingTree is the nation’s largest online lending marketplace. That means we connect customers with multiple lenders so they find the best deals on loans, credit cards, savings accounts and insurance. Our goal is to help people save money, and we believe the best way to do that is by giving them a way to shop for loans and compare lenders so they make their best financial choices. Our CEO Doug Lebda founded the company in 1996 after a frustrating house-hunting experience. In those days, we mostly helped people find good mortgage deals. Now, we help consumers find their best in personal loans, auto loans, business loans, student loans, credit cards, savings accounts, home equity loans and more. What else you should know:
–We’re a publicly-traded company (TREE).
–We’ve welcomed several other companies into the LendingTree family to augment our efforts at helping borrowers make their most sensible financial choices.
–We’ve built the LendingTree app and My LendingTree dashboard to give consumers tools to manage and monitor their financial health.
–We still make funny commercials.

CULTURE

We’re a fast-paced company with an entrepreneurial bend. We work hard and test our products often. We’re collaborative, ambitious, candid and high-energy. Our teammates are some of the brightest, most talented people you’ll ever work with. We care more about your smarts than we do about the kinds of clothes you wear (but please, do wear clothes to work!), and we’re pretty good about rewarding innovation, creativity and the knack for just getting stuff done (we even have an award for employees called the GSD, “Get Stuff Done”). Come work with us! LendingTree is the kind of company that not only promotes diversity and inclusion; we thrive because of these values. We do not discriminate based on race, color, religion (or creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or military status.
