The Women’s Sports Medicine Center at Hospital for Special Surgery sponsors internships for students interested in the field of sports medicine with a special focus on active and athletic women. The internship is a full-time, 8-week diverse summer experience. Interns will shadow all members of our health care team with exposure to sports medicine, orthopedic surgery, primary care sports medicine, sports nutrition, exercise physiology, and physical therapy.
Interns are responsible for the completion of a sports medicine-related project and are involved in educational outreach on behalf of the Women’s Sports Medicine Center. Interns may also have the opportunity to assist in various ongoing research projects at the Center.
Applicants must be pre-med, or in medical school with an interest in sports medicine. Priority is given to medical students and those who have completed undergraduate pre-medical training.
Interns are paid a stipend of $1,500.
Interested applicants should submit their resume, a one-page personal statement, a cover letter, a transcript, and a letter of recommendation by February 1st, 2013. Applicants will be notified about the internship by March 15th, 2013. Please mail or email applications to:
