Academic Level:
High School Students

Select high school students from Baltimore City and from Greater Baltimore Metropolitan area schools who have an interest in a career in science and/or medicine are recommended by officials at their schools for the internship which is held at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine Department of Neurology on the East Baltimore campus. Over an 8-week period, interns will have the opportunity to participate in a research project guided by faculty, staff and student mentors, as well as participate in clinical rotations within neurology.

This program serves mainly students living in the Baltimore metropolitan area and does not provide housing or pay for transportation or parking. Interns are paid a stipend of $11/hour.

Activities Include:

-Meetings with Hopkins faculty – mentor/mentee selection

-Attendance at scientific seminars

-Weekly educational and professional development sessions

-Preparation of a final oral and poster presentation describing his/her work.

The purpose of the Johns Hopkins Internship in Brain Sciences (JHIBS) program is to contribute in a significant way to feeding the neurological sciences pipeline. Seventy-five percent of college students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) decide in high school to study and pursue careers in these areas. Hence, JHIBS targets students at this early stage by providing a hands-on mentored research experience. We believe that by providing the right pre-college exposure, together with long-term mentoring, educational resources, and encouragement, bright, intelligent, academically capable UR students can successfully pursue the pathway to a profession as a researcher and/or clinician scientist at the doctoral level.
