Summer Student Research Internship with Inova Advanced Lung Disease and Transplant Program

Each summer, we have 2-5 students who work with our research staff and a physician mentor on a research project in the realm of advanced lung disease or lung transplantation. The student’s summer volunteer experience may also include opportunities to attend research conferences, clinical educational conferences, observe patient procedures and patient visits during the course of the workday. At the end of the internship, students will be asked to give a PowerPoint presentation on their project.
