Through generous support from Dr. Kim Eagle '76, the Honors College is privileged to offer students the opportunity to apply for an internship with the Michigan Clinical Outcomes Research and Reporting Program (MCORRP).

This summer internship program is a 10 week opportunity, from early June to August, at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor.  The Honors College intern will join a diverse group of undergraduate, graduate and medical students from various schools across the country in the summer program. To familiarize themselves with the work done at MCORRP, students are involved with one or more of the MCORRP databases: International Registry of Acute Aortic Dissection (IRAD), Michigan Anticoagulation Quality Improvement Initiative (MAQI2), Cardiac Sarcoidosis Consortium (CSC), OVERCOME Heart Failure Registry, Project Healthy School (PHS), Project My Heart Your Heart, US Registry for Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) and many more. This can consist of data abstraction, form design, and data entry, among other tasks.

In addition to database work, each student spends time developing a research project. Using the same data they've helped collect over the course of the summer, students develop a hypothesis, have statistical analysis done, and present their results at the end of the program. Many of these projects are later submitted to national scientific conferences.

Finally, interns are given the opportunity to experience medicine first hand. Physicians allow students to accompany them on rounds and in the clinic. They also shadow specialists in peripheral arterial disease, cardiac surgery, electrophysiology and cardiac catheterization. Students also volunteer at the World Medical Relief helping to sort reusable medical supplies to be shipped around the world. Additionally, lectures given by MCORRP faculty, staff and guests enhance students' understanding of a variety of healthcare and research topics.

The HC intern receives hourly compensation for time worked within MCORRP ($15/hour), along with an OSU scholarship which covers a summer housing allowance totaling $1,500 and $500 to cover the cost to travel to and from Ann Arbor, Michigan.   

Applicants should be interested in pursuing a career in healthcare and be a strong steward of OSU and the Honors College. Preference will be given to students in their third year of study within the HC at the time of application. We expect to begin reviewing applications for summer 2024 internships after application deadline February 25, 2024.
