Summer Clinical Internship Program

The Summer Clinical Internship Program (SCIP) will not be offered in the 2022 summer.  We are exploring revising this program for future offerings.

The Office of Admissions at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School invites you to apply for the Summer Clinical Internship Program for undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students interested in careers in medicine.  

Program Description

Participants will have the opportunity to shadow clinical faculty members at the medical facilities in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Distinguished faculty from a variety of specialties will host students. Students will be paired with faculty in specialties representing students’ interests. The program runs 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Students are encouraged to keep the hours of the clinicians in order to get a real sense of the specialty, the issues in patient care and the practice of medicine. A lunchtime seminar series will complement the clinical experiences. Students will also take part in a pedagogic exercise at the end of the program. Students will make brief presentations to their peers on topics selected and researched with the guidance of the faculty preceptors.
