DSHREP is a ten-week program where undergraduate and graduate students are provided with information about career opportunities in medicine and biomedical research in an invigorating educational environment. The intention of this program is to develop an understanding of critical issues in basic science and clinical research.

DSHREP is supported through an R25 research education grant funded by National Heart, Lung, Blood Institute (NHLBI), an agency of National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Research interns are paid a bi-weekly salary of $10.00 per hour based on a 40 hour work week (students are not eligible for holiday pay or overtime). All laboratory expenses are covered.

Housing accommodations are arranged for research interns whose permanent address is outside of Milwaukee County. Interns share an apartment suite with cooking facilities. Travel expenses to and from Milwaukee are available to those who do not reside within Wisconsin.

Research interns will be able to participate in various social mixers (e.g., cookout, receptions), take advantage of the City of Festivals and visit local attractions.

Qualified diverse students who are accepted into the program are "matched" with an established faculty investigator(s) to participate in research project(s) addressing the causes, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular, pulmonary and hematological diseases.
