Students at Bitterroot Valley high school are getting a truly hands-on experience this summer, having performed surgeries and advanced procedures at Victor Hospital. These procedures include excising a large tumor and performing autopsies — not bad for an internship!
This is how internships are meant to be handled: hands-on, vital experience and rewarding for both staff and students. Have you been on internship, what did you get to do? Are you planning anything similar this summer? Let us know.

Veterinary students in the US are being asked to consider devoting time to high end research programmes instead of travelling over the summer.
Biomedical Research institute, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is sponsoring the promotion which aims to produce more physician-scientists to bridge the gap between clinical expertise and better treatments. It goes without saying that the experience and connections gained could prove invaluable in securing a job after graduation.
