Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
The BCMB Department at UT-Knoxville will once again offer a special REU program for undergraduates interested in hands-on scientific research experience. The broad focus is on Sensing and Signaling in Biological Systems. The team of REU faculty represent multiple modern scientific disciplines including cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, physical chemistry, and computational biology.
We especially encourage rising sophomores and rising junior undergraduate science majors to apply.
Underrepresented minorities, women, and first generation college students are also strongly encouraged to apply.

Project Healthcare is a summer-intensive internship designed to immerse undergraduates/post-graduate/post-baccalaureates in the realities of the healthcare field at Bellevue Hospital Center. Throughout the ten-week program, participants perform clinical shifts throughout the Emergency Department (including the pediatric and psychiatric EDs), Operating Room, Cardiac Catheterization Lab, Social Work. Students also get to observe autopsies at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, ride on FDNY ambulances, serve as health educators for a day managing a booth at our annual health fair, and work on a research project.
Through working on rotating shifts for, on average, 25 hours per week, observing minor invasive procedures and trauma cases, shadowing clinicians, and serving as patient advocates, students gain a tremendous amount of contact with patients and healthcare providers.
Interested students can learn more about the program and access the online application form at the below link:
Please be advised that the application requires submission of an online form, essay, CV, photo and two letters of recommendation.Out of our applicant pool, we invite a portion to come in for an interview. We usually offer 3-4 interview days on weekends in March (around the time of most spring breaks). We generally receive 800+ applications per year and end with a group of 50 participants.
Much more than a shadowing program, MD-SEE offers genuine clinical experience, classroom guidance on presentations, and a vigorous look at current issues and practices in medicine. This course will cover variable topics of special interest in the field of Clinical Neurology. Undergraduates will have an opportunity to correlate experience with actual patients with the science behind the diagnosis. During their time in the clinics, students will act as a “patient assistant,” helping patients who may have partial paralysis or loss of sensation. They will learn the basics of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will record patients’ history and neurological findings while observing real-life patient examinations. Each student will be assigned a Clinical Neurology faculty mentor who will help develop the writing and poster projects. Publication of student work will be encouraged, co-authored by the faculty mentor.
This is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in medical school.
We will be begin accepting applications on January 6, 2015.
The preferred application deadline is March 2, 2015.
