Undergraduate Student Internships


Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern University volunteer internships are available year-round for motivated undergraduate students. This program provides students with an opportunity to explore the field of integrative medicine. It is primarily intended for students considering a medical degree or PhD following college. Students with a clinical interest can spend time in the outpatient clinic, shadowing physicians and complementary medicine providers, and learning through assigned scholarly work. Students interested in research can work with an experienced faculty to gain hands on experience in methodologies, theoretical approaches and scientific applications to integrative medicine studies. Students and their designated faculty mentor(s) will meet regularly to identify and set in motion a relevant course of scholarly activities, training goals and internship objectives.

Meet our interns for Summer 2020!
