Hello,

Thanks for reading this thread. I am a first year medical student at Imperial College in London (UK). I have 14 weeks off in the summer and I'd like to do some work/research over that time. Ideally, I'd like this work/research to contribute to my application for residencies when the time comes. I'm willing to travel anywhere for the experience. If I had to pick an area of interest it'd be infectious disease medicine -- but I'm open to all possibilities.

I'm a mature student from the US with a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering and an M.Sc. in Control of Infectious Disease (public health). I also have work experience in engineering, biomedical research and epidemiology.

I need advice on what kind of work/research to do. I'd also like to find out what programs are available and are good for this kind of thing.

Can you please give me some advise on what to do or point me in the direction of some good summer programs or resources? I've got connections in my respective fields and I'd be happy to return the favor.

Many thanks and best wishes,

- Herm

Hi, besides the numerous universities with Infectious Disease programs that you can look into, you can also try the NIH (www.nih.gov)- they have special opps for med students (and will try to place you in the field of interest ) and the CDC (www.cdc.gov). GOOD LUCK!
