HIPRC’s INSIGHT Summer Research Program

HIPRC’s INSIGHT Summer Research Program offers an outstanding opportunity to work on a research project in the field of injury. Elite high school, undergraduate and graduate students are matched to projects and project tasks, and partnered with University of Washington Medical School faculty.

Placements include government agencies, corporations, nonprofits, museums, arts organizations, and international organizations. Hundreds of UW students have participated in this program since UW’s affiliation in 1977, and many made connections that led to post-degree employment.
