Open to undergraduate, graduate and medical students, this rigorous program also offers a few positions to the most advanced rising high school seniors. Full-time, eight- or nine-week fellowships pair students with preceptors from a variety of laboratories and clinics at the University of Colorado-Denver, University of Colorado-Boulder, University of Colorado Hospital and other Denver-area healthcare institutions. Intern duties, which vary according to the needs of the preceptor, may include data collection, cell cultures, data analysis and testing. Fellows attend twice-weekly lectures and present their research findings at a concluding poster session. Applicants should have prior experience with advanced high school science classes, preferably those carrying an Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate designation.
