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. Uundergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a graduate degree will gain hands-on experience with integrative health research, receive mentorship from clinical and research faculty, and participate in other scholarly activities. 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.

The 2021 summer program is a paid internship and can be completed remotely. As we aim to increase equity and inclusion within integrative health and research, we encourage students from minoritized and under-represented communities to apply. 

Meet our interns for Summer 2020!
