Undergraduate Student Internship Programme
The NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR) Undergraduate Student Internship Programme provides students with experience in a research environment and access to a team of specialised mentors and supervisors. The aim of the programme is to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to gain primary care research experience, allow for greater collaboration and to raise the academic profile of general practice.
SPCR members are offering research opportunities for undergraduate students, from any degree based at a UK university, to take on a summer research internship. All internship projects are offered as virtual opportunities or in-person at the relevant university. More information on the projects can be found below:
