    What is an Internship?

    • An internship is a workplace experience, like a job, which can help you grow and learn about careers you might want to pursue. An internship will have a position description, several learning objectives, as well as start and end dates.
    • An internship can be full or part-time, paid or unpaid, and offered during the school year or summer. If a student wants to earn high school credit for an internship, a parent or legal guardian will need to give written permission for a student to participate, and Cindy Jamieson will visit the site to help make sure all policies are followed. After the paperwork is completed, 180 hours are required to earn .5 CTE credit per semester.
    • Please remember you are not guaranteed an internship but you are encouraged to apply and have your resume and cover letter ready at all times.

    Research Training Program at Seattle Children's Hospital

    For Summer 2021, Seattle Children's Research Institute is pleased to offer two programs for high school students interested in biomedical research.

    1. The Research Training Program (RTP) is an in-person, limited-capacity  program, with a competitive application process for students from groups that are underrepresented in biomedical research.
    2. The Virtual Research Training Program (VRTP) is an online program with no limit to capacity.

    Students will learn how to work in a research laboratory environment and learn about topics including biochemistry, immunotherapy, gene editing, and infectious diseases. Students will also participate in workshops on college readiness and career exploration.

    There is no cost to participate in either program. Stipends are available for students participating in the in-person RTP to offset costs for transportation and food. We do not provide or arrange housing for students.

    New for 2021:

    The health and safety of our staff, students, and families are of the highest importance. We are continuing to rely on the guidance and expertise of public health agencies regarding the safety and feasibility of in-person programs. If the in-person RTP is cancelled, all applicants will be automatically offered the opportunity to participate in the online VRTP.
