Every summer since 2000, the Hepatitis B Foundation has recruited outstanding college students for its Summer Internship Program, located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania (25 miles north of Philadelphia).
Interns work with professional scientists from the Hepatitis B Foundation and its research affiliate, the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, as well as the Drexel Institute of Drexel University College of Medicine. Valuable mentoring and supervision of individual projects is provided for each student. At the conclusion of the summer, interns present their projects to the entire faculty in a special seminar.
The Summer Internship Program is supported, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education and funding from the foundations, organizations, and private individuals.
This is a 10-week summer program that is scheduled for June 2 to August 8, 2014. Students entering their junior or senior year of college in the Fall of 2014 are eligible to apply. Housing is the responsibility of the student.
The Student Internship Program has established an excellent record of accomplishment. To date, there are 115 Program alumni who have completed their undergraduate studies. All have enrolled in either professional (medical or veterinary) or graduate school or have found employment in the biomedical field in either biopharma or in academia.
