Health & Science – Upcoming Events, Opportunities, and Resources


Hello Hoyas!  

Many of you are still making plans for the summer, and let me just say, there is plenty of time to still plan so please try not to stress. You are welcome to make an appointment with me via Handshake (new window) to talk through options now or after finals.

Nonetheless, there are numerous options to obtain practical experience or utilize your summer fruitfully besides engaging in a structured internship. If financial stability is your priority, go ahead and take on a part-time job such as lifeguarding, retail, or babysitting. Alternatively, you may prefer to concentrate on preparing for the MCAT or GRE, or perhaps take a break from academic pressure and indulge in a Netflix binge. Remember that as a student, your primary focus is on your studies, and potential employers or admissions committees will not scrutinize” gaps” in your resume. Here are some summer break ideas that go beyond the conventional internship experience.

For pre-health students, this spreadsheet (new window) outlines more summer opportunities to consider.
