Human Physiology Internship/practicum

Human Physiology Internship/practicum

Its one of the big attractions in our Human Physiology program: a full-semester internship. The goal of this required senior-year course is twofold: to apply what youve learned in the classroom and to learn what a classroom cant teach. What makes our program so special? Minimal observation, maximum participation, and a selection of clinical and research sites that few schools can match. For example, if you take your internship in a hospital or clinical center, you can count on direct patient contact. In a laboratory internship, youll have real responsibilities in a research project. Many students say their experience gave them a clearer view of medical practice or research in the real worldand a stronger commitment to their chosen field. With so many Sargent College internships in Boston and across the country, choosing the one that best complements your interests and career goals takes some guidance. So our Internship Coordinator Judy Schotland , clinical associate professor, will work with you personally to find one thats relevant and exciting to you. Practical experience in a clinic, hospital, community or research institution or other appropriate setting. The majority of field sites chosen will be those offering experience in clinical or basic research, the evaluation of cardiovascular health and fitness, cardiac rehabilitation, and other duties specific to the day-to-day operation of these agencies. Please note: a one-time $100 internship fee per undergraduate internship course will be applied. This fee will cover all administrative expenses incurred for the students participation in this academic requirement.

Country Star Eric Paslay Visited Patients At Joslin Diabetes Center

Country Star Eric Paslay Visited Patients At Joslin Diabetes Center

Eric Paslay hangs out with the patients/Photo provided By the time country star Eric Paslay hit the Patriot Fest stage on Saturday, he had already treated a lucky group of fans to a much more intimate show. Paslay serenaded a group of 15 Joslin Diabetes Center patients, all of whom have type 1 diabetes, during a private performance before the main event on the Lawn on D. The singer himself was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 10. Besides singing for the patients and their parents, he chatted with the group and even compared glucose numbers with a few children. One patient asked him what its like to live on the road with diabetes. Peter Amenta, president and CEO of Joslin Diabetes Center, says he was grateful for the experience. We not only got to enjoy some of our favorite Eric Paslay hits in-person and take him on a tour of our pediatric department, but he really took the time to get to know our patients and bond with them about his own experiences living with type 1 diabetes, Amenta says. It was a very special day for all of us. Paslay poses with one of the patients at Joslin Diabetes Center/Photo provided Continue reading >>

Family And Child Life Services

Family And Child Life Services

All Joslin patients and families are welcome to participate in a variety of therapeutic and recreational play activities. These services are available daily in the pediatric waiting area during clinic visits, and in the exam rooms and the laboratory when procedures are necessary. Child Life Specialists are child development professionals who specialize in supporting children, adolescents and their families through illness, injury and healthcare experiences. We work closely with other pediatric team members to help reduce your childs stress and to promote normal growth and development. Prepare children for upcoming medical procedures and lab work. Help them cope with injections, blood checks, or taking other medications. Help children manage medical treatments and schedules. Help you understand your childs view of diabetes and its treatment. Help siblings to understand a brother/sisters diabetes. Provide ideas on how to talk about diabetes with childrens friends and classmates. Engage children in meaningful play to reduce stress and help them feel more comfortable during visits. Suggestions for Preparing Children for Upcoming Office Visits Let younger childrenknow about the visit about two days in advance and older children about one week in advance. Include a fair warning about any blood work that may be needed. If no blood work is scheduled, let your child know that you do not expect any blood to be drawn. But also say that you wont know for sure until you ask the doctor or nurse. It is important to avoid false promises because sometimes a medical need arises. Encourage children to bring along something special to office visits, such as a doll or blanket, to help them feel less nervous. Suggestions for Difficulty with Injections Draw up the insulin and prepare all nec Continue reading >>

Hiram College | Senior Awarded Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship

Senior Awarded Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Senior Awarded Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Senior Laila Almassri is one of 44 undergraduate students accepted into the 2013 Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Program, which provides participants with a challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell science laboratory. Almassri is in the midst of a ten-week program, running from June 10-Aug. 16, in the Joslin Diabetes Center laboratory of HSCI Affiliated Faculty member Thomas Serwold, who is known for his research on the immune systems role in Type 1 diabetes. Almassris project this summer is to design a way to detect GDF-11, a protein involved in the development of the thymus. My internship experience this summer has allowed me to be a part of a team of leading researchers whose vision is to develop therapeutic cures for diabetes, Almassri said. I have learned that therapeutic research begins with the interest and dedication of one individual, and it progresses through collaboration amongst many individuals. My overall experience has reinforced my desire to become a physician-scientist and has taught me to be fearless. Over the course of the program, interns participate in a stem cell seminar series, a career pathways presentation, and a weekly stem cell companion course. They present their summer research findings, both orally and in poster format, at an end-of-program symposium. This program represents an exciting opportunity for undergraduates to gain hands-on experience in stem cell research while working in an HSCI laboratory under the supervision of an experienced researcher, said HSCI Internship Program director M. William Lensch, PhD. The Harvard Stem Cell Institute is a collaborative of more than 1,000 leading scientists, Continue reading >>
