CRA Summer Studentship Programs

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

It is never too early to plan for your summer!
There is a high demand for new rheumatologists in Canada. The Summer Studentship programs are an excellent way for medical students to garner experience and interest in this subspecialty.

The Canadian Rheumatology Association (CRA) has an ongoing clinical Summer Studentship (sponsored by Abbott) designed for medical students registered in a Canadian University Medical School. This experiential program selected students to work with a rheumatologist who is a member of the CRA.

The CRA is also pleased to offer a research-based Summer Studentship (sponsored by Roche) designed to introduce medical students of Canadian citizenship, registered in a medical school, to the subspecialty of Rheumatology. The format of this program entails connecting a student with a CRA preceptor who has an available Rheumatology research project. These respective research projects must enable participating students to make a significant contribution over the course of the summer.
