Women's Health Internship Opportunities at Wake Forest School of Medicine


Links to External Internship Programs

The Office of Women in Medicine and Science (OWIMS) is committed to the promotion of women’s health and we know that the recruitment of future top-notch researchers and physicians begins at the undergraduate level of college.  The OWIMS coordinates women's health internships between Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) researchers and healthcare providers and undergraduate students from area colleges who are looking for projects for course credit and/or experience in women's health or gender differences research.


Internship Procedures for Undergraduate Students and Sponsors    

OWIMS serves as a means for students and sponsors to connect with one another. Once an internship is established, any issues that arise must be resolved between the student and sponsor. 
All projects will be in a research setting and managed within departments by the sponsor. 

Please note that these internships are unpaid positions and we do not have housing available for out-of-state students.  

Graduate, undergraduate, and medical students are all welcome to apply for these internships. 

Please allow a minimum of 4 weeks before your intended start date to complete application procedures.
