Surgery Clinical Research Experiences for High School Students
The UW Department of Surgery is one of nine recipients of grant support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to support clinical research experiences for underrepresented minority high school students. The Surgery Clinical Research Experiences for High School Students offers minority students first hand opportunities to experience the rewards of an academic medical career which include providing cutting-edge patient care in an environment that promotes novel clinical investigation. The program is designed to encourage participants to consider careers in surgery with a clinical research component. The program closely collaborates with the University of Wisconsin’s Precollege Enrichment Opportunity for Learning Excellence (PEOPLE).
