Paid Summer Health Services Research Internship for Undergraduate Students
Today, one in every four Americans belongs to a racial or ethnic minority group. Yet despite tremendous advances in health science in recent decades, minorities still fall victim to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and HIV/AIDS in numbers far greater than whites.

Clearly, it's going to take more than medicine alone to change this fact. It will take health services researchers and epidemiologists whose minority perspective can bring a broader understanding to the political, social, economic and environmental realities of the disparity of health care between minorities and whites.

To prepare top candidates to pursue research in health services and epidemiology, the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) and the Health Care Management Department of the Wharton School (HCMD), University of Pennsylvania are seeking applicants for our summer research program for underrepresented minority undergraduate students and interested others. Candidates from minority groups that are underrepresented in the field of health services (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, and Pacific Islander) are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Summer Undergraduate Minority Research (SUMR) program, in its fourteenth year, provides rising sophomores, juniors and seniors with an opportunity to receive a generous monthly stipend to conduct health services and/or epidemiology research on a topic of their choice, under the guidance of Penn faculty. The purpose of SUMR is to prepare and encourage top students to pursue academic and research careers in health services research and epidemiology. In addition to conducting research, SUMR Scholars will participate in an orientation program, enroll in a GRE prep course, attend weekly seminars, attend a national conference in Baltimore, and network with health services researchers and epidemiologists. The program runs from late May 28th through August 16th and currently is funded by LDI, HCMD, the Provost’s Diversity Fund, and the VA Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP). Past supporters, and/or supporters of individual SUMR Scholars, have included the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Penn's Center of Excellence for Diversity Health Education and Research,  and Penn's School of Nursing.

Interested students can get program details and the on-line application due February 1, by visiting SUMR’s web site at

Please contact at or (215) 898-1655 if you have any questions.
