The Weber Summer Scholars Program is an exciting summer internship opportunity to introduce high school students and college pre-med students to the many career options available in the medical field. Students will have the opportunity to choose an area of interest including Radiology, Emergency Medicine, Surgery, Internal Medicine, etc. Before the program begins, students are assigned a physician mentor in a specific specialty who they will shadow the entire length of the program. The program is designed to be individual tailored to meet the interests of each student. Students work with and have direct interaction with staff physicians and other health care providers and will have the change to ask questions, observe, and explore the working field of medicine.

Additionally, students are also assigned single-day rotations once a week where they are able to travel to different departments around the hospital. This allows them to experience other sub-specialties outside of their assigned department. Student will also have the opportunity to participate in weekly workshops conducted by physicians.
