Research & Internship Experiences

At the BSP, we know that talent is found throughout the population, but opportunities are not. Therefore, we work with BSP members to discover and apply for training, research, and intern positions that align with their interests. We also provide in-house opportunities for our members.

BSP alum Lauren Harris (Class of 2018, Public Health) partnered with BSP staff to find the SMDEP summer program at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and College of Dental Medicine. Students engage in intense labs, learning-skills, and career development courses during the six-week program while attending weekly clinical rotations and seminars. Harris participated in 2016, saying, "this program has done nothing but motivate, educate, and solidify my dreams of becoming a physician... thank you to BSP for providing me with this life changing experience!"
