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.
Why do an internship
Previous interns to the SPCR internship scheme have enjoyed the opportunity and identified several benefits from taking part:
I highly recommend the internship. Really grateful for all the support I continue to receive from my supervisors. They've encouraged me to push this project all the way to conference presentations and publications"
SPCR Members are offering research opportunities for undergraduate students, from any degree based at a UK university, to take on a summer research internship. Internship projects are offered either as a virtual opportunity or in-person at the relevant university. More information on the available projects can be found below:
