2023 INSIGHT Program seeking Project, Mentor Submissions

By: Alexandra de Leon Date: January 9th, 2023

The 2023 INSIGHT Summer Research Program is a few months away, and Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center is looking for HIPRC-affiliated faculty and fellows to provide mentorship for our 2023 cohort of summer interns. The success of all our students that come through the program is due in large part to the mentors that help introduce them to injury research and public health.

This eight-week program runs virtually June 20 – August 10, 2023. Students will receive a stipend, create a research presentation, and present at the in-person INSIGHT Research Symposium on Aug. 9th & 10th, 2023. Student interns will also have basic access to statistical experts for advice on analytical approach and inference.

Research projects must be suitable in challenge and scope for an upper level undergraduate student to complete in eight weeks. Data should be accessible, including any necessary IRB approval, by early May 2023. Mentors should be able to guide students and provide opportunities for check-in at least weekly (about two hours per week). Projects that integrate a pediatric/youth/across the lifespan component or address questions of diversity and equity are desired but not mandatory.

For questions on project suitability, becoming a mentor, or any other comments and concerns, you can email us at injuryed@uw.edu.
