Summer Studentship

The Mini Med School Summer Studentship is intended to provide well-motivated students, with records of exceptional academic performance, an opportunity to work closely with the research community at BC Children's Hospital.

Successful candidates have the opportunity to work at BC Children's Hospital on a specific research project over 6-weeks between July and August and will receive a stipend of $1,500. Funding for up to 4 studentships have been generously provided by BC’s Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Mini Med School Summer Studentship recipients!
