Current high school students looking for summer enrichment in the fields of medicine or public health, look no further than the INSIGHT Program for High School students from Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center. The application deadline has now passed.

Students will focus their team project on one of HIPRC’s five main research areas – traumatic brain injury, violence prevention, safe and active transport, global injury or injury care – and learn about the impacts and opportunities public health in these growing medical fields. Participants will also engage in professional development seminars, injury research seminars and tours of Seattle-area medical services such as Airlift Northwest and the Harborview Medical Center Emergency Department.
