The Diversity Summer Internship Program (DSIP) was established in 1995 to provide an independent research experience in biomedical and/or public health research to undergraduate students under the direct mentoring of established Johns Hopkins researchers. During the ten-week program, interns work one-on-one with faculty on research projects in their field of interest and attend a health science seminar series. Students from underrepresented minority groups and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in careers in science, medicine or public health are encouraged to apply. DSIP provides a stipend and housing near the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus.

DSIP offers internships at three Johns Hopkinsresearch settings:

• Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Schoolof Public Health

• Basic Science Institute (School of Medicine)

• Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division (School of Medicine)

Previous intern research projects includean examination of maternal-fetal calcium homeostasis, an assessment of hospitalbased trauma patients and a survey of community-based health care organizations. The internship provides students with an academic experience similar to that of a firstyear graduate student. Interns will gain skills in preparing scientific abstracts, posters and oral presentations.


Applicants to the programs with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Basic Science Institute must

have completed two years of college. Students who wish to apply for an internship in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division must have completed one year of college.Prospective interns must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents in good

academic standing. Applicants are requested to submit two to three letters of recommendation, a resume and personal

statement. Successful applicants have a demonstrated interest in pursuing graduate study.
