The Worcester institutions The College of the Holy Cross and UMass Memorial Health, are partnering this summer to offer hands-on experience to students at the Worcester college.
The Summit program’s inaugural cohort includes six Holy Cross students, according to a July 12 communications department story from the Liberal Arts school. Students are participating in an eight-week internship in pediatric medicine at UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center, where they will have the opportunity to shadow hospital rounds, work in medical labs, and analyze data for clinical research.
Two of the student interns are working with a UMass nurse practitioner in the pediatric intensive care unit on a study of best-treatments for diabetic children experiencing complications.
“They learn from learning practitioners in pediatrics and deepen their commitment to a career in the health professions,” said Amy Murphy, director of the Center for Career Development at Holy Cross, in the story. “Through this internship with UMass Children’s Medical Center, my hope is that our students gain further clarity about their own specific career and professional goals and confidently see themselves as emerging professionals in the health professions.”
