science & medical research
what is research?
Research is generally the study of a subject in order to discover new information, establish facts, and/or reach new conclusions or understandings. Most of our medical research internships are in a lab setting. General science internships may also take place in a lab or other setting in any of the major branches of science, including biology, physics, and earth science. Many branches overlap to include areas such as zoology, botany, thermodynamics, geology, astronomy, and others.
