Check back in Fall 2014 for updated REU information!
In partnership with the University of Pennsylvania, the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia hosts for the Injury Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, which offers 10-week paid summer research internships for undergraduate students. CIRP is a leading multidisciplinary center engaged in collaborative cross-discipline research implementing real world applications.
The REU program, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, provides underrepresented students with mentorship and hands-on research experience in the fields of engineering, behavioral science, education, population science and statistics as applied to pediatric injury science (i.e., prevention of injury, post-injury/traumatic stress, and secondary prevention). Each REU student works closely with a CIRP mentor or mentors on an assigned project or projects and also attends formal workshops, meetings, field trips, seminars, and social events.
