COVID-19 Update: The COVID-19 pandemic has caused rapid changes at BCCHR and has greatly impacted all areas of research at BC Children’s Hospital. While the health and safety of the research community is our first priority, we also realize the important contributions to research our summer students make each year. Working with our partner organizations, we have made adjustments to the planned program so we can continue to offer BCCHR Summer Studentships and host the Summer Student Research Program virtually for 2020. If you have any questions or concerns you can reach us at

Summer Student Research Program

Welcome to the 2020 Summer Student Research Program! 

The Summer Student Research Education Program has been designed to provide students with research experience, but also to expose students to the breadth and depth of research at the Oak Street Campus. Students can expect quality training, exposure to a variety of topics and associated skills training.

This year, the summer program will be held virtually. Workshops, faculty talks, student presentations and networking events will be streamed online. Students will be sent a weekly bulletin with videoconference links to attend sessions happening in the same week. Attendance will be recorded during each videoconference session.
