The Native American Research Internship is a dynamic summer research opportunity for Native American Undergraduate Junior and Senior students who are interested in Health Science research. The internship is located at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is a 10-week, paid summer internship, funded by the National Institutes of Health. The internship focus is to provide Native American students an outstanding laboratory or clinically based research experience working alongside world-class research faculty at the University of Utah. The goal of the internship is to support the academic, career, and personal development of Native American students who are interested in Health Science careers. Each student will participate in approximately 40 hours/week of internship activities. Approximately 30 hours/week will be for research-related activities, and approximately 10 hours/week will be for academic/professional development. Students will work closely with research mentors as well as Native American faculty and staff mentors, develop meaningful relationships within the Health Science and Native American research communities, attend a Native American Health conference, and have opportunities to shadow physicians at their clinical practice. Students will also gain insightful knowledge in the areas of graduate/medical school preparation, career development, additional academic opportunities, community engagement, professionalism, creating scientific posters, and presenting research material. Additionally, students who successfully complete a summer internship have the option of participating again during the following summer, essentially being able to participate for two summers. The Native American Research Internship provides participants compensation for their participation in the summer program, as well as housing at the University of Utah. Both University of Utah students and non-University of Utah undergraduate students are encouraged to apply. No previous research experience is required.

Hands On Health Careers

The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is a FREE summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested in the health professions. SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. These students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage.


The University of Iowa Health Sciences Colleges is pleased to offer an enriching six week experience with SHPEP. The Health Sciences Colleges include the Carver College of Medicine, College of Dentistry, College of Pharmacy, and College of Public Health. They strongly believe in the value of exposing students from underrepresented backgrounds to the possibility of pursuing health fields and supporting their goals in accomplishing that dream to help improve the health of society at large.
