"Optimizing Combat Casualty Care"

USAISR 2016 Undergrad Summer Internship

The US Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) is seeking applications for summer internship appointments for undergraduate students from accredited colleges and universities to conduct research at the USAISR.

The internship will be from Monday 06 June to Wednesday 10 August 2016. Applicants will be evaluated once their complete packet is submitted. The final deadline for application submission is Friday, March 4, 2016.

Only U.S. citizens are eligible for this program.

The intent of the undergraduate student internship is to provide an opportunity for students interested in science, engineering or medical career fields to participate in research directed at improving the care of injured military service members and society at large.

This mentored research experience will expose interns to ongoing efforts in integrated science, technology and engineering solutions at the nation’s premier military trauma research institute.

All interns must have completed at least their First Year class requirements for a bachelor’s degree. A science or engineering program of study will be considered favorably. Selected candidates will be compensated $2726.00 per month, based upon full-time participation.

Chosen applicants will work closely with a USAISR staff mentor and their research team to conduct a scientific investigation in one of the research focus areas of the USAISR:

  • Hemorrhage Control
  • Resuscitation
  • Blood and Coagulation
  • Burn Injury
  • Ocular Trauma
  • Dental Trauma
  • Pre-hospital Trauma Care
  • Intensive Care
  • Pain
  • Regenerative Medicine
  • Extremity Trauma

Interns will present the findings of their research projects during the last week of the internship.

Those travelling from outside the San Antonio, TX area may be eligible to receive additional travel funds, which will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Transportation and housing will not be provided. All participants must provide their own housing and transportation.
