I spent my summer in the St. Jude Pediatric Oncology Education Program, an NHI/NCI funded internship program that allows for research, clinical exposure, and educational activities all within the world class confines of St. Jude. Out of the 23 summers I’ve experienced to date, it was my favorite by far and I would highly recommend applying to this program to all who are interested in research and the fields of oncology and pediatrics. This experience allowed me to conduct individual research in one of the two surgery research labs at St. Jude where I was able to do my own work while still observing multiple surgical procedures and participating in other POE activities
