INSIGHT seeking project, mentor submissions

By: HIPRC Date: February 7th, 2020

The 2020 INSIGHT Summer Research Program is almost here, and Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center is looking for University of Washington faculty and fellows to provide mentorship for our 2020 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 them. Many of these students go on to medical school or other Ph.D. programs.

This eight-week program runs June 15-Aug. 7, 2020. Relevant trainings in CITI, ORCA, and or Epic can be provided as necessary. Students will receive a stipend, create a research poster, and present at the INSIGHT Research Symposium on Aug. 7, 2020. Student interns will also have basic access to statistical experts for advice on analytical approach and interference.

Research projects must be suitable in challenge and scope for an upper level undergraduate student to complete in eight weeks and should have IRB approval by early May 2020. Mentors should be able to guide students and provide opportunities for check-in at least weekly. Projects that can also integrate a pediatric/youth/across the lifespan component are desired but not mandatory.

For questions on project suitability, becoming a mentor, or any other comments and concerns, you can email us at To sign up to be a mentor, complete our INSIGHT Mentorship Interest and Research Project Form.
