Check back in Fall 2014 for updated REU information!
The Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia partnered with the University of Pennsylvania to host the Injury Science Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, a 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 worked closely with a CIRP mentor or mentors on an assigned project or projects and also attended formal workshops, meetings, field trips, seminars, and social events.
