A healthy diet complete with plenty of fruits and vegetables is an important contributor to reaching and maintaining a healthy body weight. It is also protective against many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer.
The research community at BC Children's Hospital is committed to the research education needs of undergraduate and medical students.
Each year, our Summer Student Research Program provides students with the opportunity to complete a basic science or clinical research project and participate in a research education program. Students are supervised by word-class researchers in the area of biomedical, clinical, population and health sciences from BC Children's Hospital or BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre.
Throughout the year, faculty members may also hire students through a university-affiliated work study, directed study or co-op program. This provides students an opportunity to work in a professional environment and develop key career skills. For information, contact your university career center.
