Visiting Scholars

The SUDDEN project accepts a limited number of domestically and foreign trained medical graduates while preparing for entrance into an internal medicine residency program. Visiting scholars gain experience in leadership by becoming responsible for quality assurance projects, training rotating medical students, and by designing and managing their own clinical research project. The visiting scholar will also benefit from the mentorship of several physicians who will guide the scholar through the residency application process. You must be finished with your medical school graduation requirements when you arrive at UNC for an unpaid research internship. Research experiences are offered on a space available basis to those who submit appropriate application materials. Our previous visiting scholars have done research on chronic respiratory illness, International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems coding, seizures, left ventricular hypertrophy, lipids, diabetes etc. The internship is approximately 4-6 months in duration.

If you are interested in getting involved please contact us and we will respond as soon as possible.

Post-Graduate Interns

The post-graduate interns of the SUDDEN project have the exciting opportunity to truly diversify their skills in research and leadership while preparing for entrance into medical school. The post-graduate intern gains experience in leadership by becoming responsible for hiring undergraduate interns, managing their weekly tasks, and training rotating medical students. Post-graduate interns are also responsible for data procurement and managing hospital and EMS relations. The post-graduate intern will also benefit from the mentorship of several medical doctors who guide the intern through the medical school application process. Those doctors also contribute to the production of the post-graduate intern’s own research manuscript. The ideal candidate is a task-oriented self-starter that can remain organized when managing varied responsibilities.

Undergraduate interns also have a unique opportunity to pursue their own research project. The undergraduate intern will also benefit from the mentorship of several post-graduate interns as they continue to explore the possibility of attending medical school. The ideal candidate has the initiative to recognize what needs to be done for the project on a weekly basis and complete the tasks accordingly.
