Summer Options

Theodore W. Anastopoulos P’79 Fellowship

Thanks to a generous gift from Dr. Harry T. Anastopoulos ’79 P14, made in memory of his father, the Office of Health Professions Advising offers internships for students interested in exploring careers in medicine and other health professions at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. These internships give students an opportunity to participate in clinically relevant research, and provide opportunities to interact with patients and shadow healthcare professionals in a hospital environment. The positions also provide a $3000 stipend, but students are responsible for their own room and board. This is open to all students interested in exploring the health professions. Pre-Nursing and Pre-PA students are particularly encouraged to apply.

Congratulations to the 2017 Anastopoulos recipient: Yoonjin Seo '19

Past recipients:

2016: Shu Jing Lian '18 and Jasmine Nicole Austrie '17

2015: Devon Campbell '18 and Christine Jewett '16

2014: Caroline Corban '17 and Roy Tsao '16

2013: Sage Mikami '15 and Anita Shah '14
