Visits, Internships & Fellowships

Program: BCHSP Summer Internships in Pediatric Simulation

Candidate Requirements: Current high school and college students interested in broad exposure to medicine through simulation-based medical education

Background:  Each summer the CHBSP hosts 2-3 high school students with aspirations in medicine/healthcare and who express an interest in medical simulation.  The 4-6 week CHBSP Summer Internship Program introduces students to the complete workings of a hospital-based simulator program and provides a unique view into the healthcare system through medial simulation. Past CHBSP Summer Interns have gone on to college to study healthcare-related fields at Boston University, Dartmouth, and other top-rated universities.

Goals/Objectives: Specific goals of the summer internship program are:

  1. To gain exposure to and experience using high-fidelity simulation as a tool for healthcare education

  2. To understand practical aspects of and to provide administrative support for running a simulation center

  3. To provide opportunities to survey and reflect on various healthcare career options through shadowing clinicians in their native environments.

  4. To understand the principles of Crisis Resource Management and the methodology of debriefing.
