The Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit, hospital and medical research facility with a national and international reputation. Each year, students conduct original research alongside biomedical researchers in various fields. Through this program, students conduct experiments, collect data, and present their work at John Carroll’s Celebration of Scholarship and, in some cases, at regional or national conferences. Through this program, students hone skills gained in their John Carroll biology courses and learn new techniques. Students receive a $3,600 stipend for the 10-week summer program.
Academic year and summer internships for credit in environmental education and natural resource management are offered on a competitive basis to JCU biology and environmental science majors at Shaker Lakes Nature Center; students interested in this opportunity should contact Dr. Sheil.
Summer research opportunities also are available locally through the Kirtlandia program at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, MetroHealth Hospital, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo, the Holden Arboretum, and the Cleveland Botanical Garden.
