Oncology Summer Internship - The Oncology Summer Internship (OSI) is a unique, clinically focused internship where students will have the opportunity to shadow local oncology professionals and interact with patients in outpatient clinics, operating rooms, pathology and radiology labs, as well as in-patient hospital settings four full days per week. The internship’s shadowing component is designed to show students “a day in the life of an oncologist” and help them explore the various oncology subspecialties. The OSI is a paid, 4-week clinical shadowing internship designed to help underrepresented in medicine (UIM) medical students explore cancer care and oncology as a career. Students must be a rising second-year student at one of the selected OSI host sites to be considered for participation.
