Shadowing and Clinical Research
The following is an opportunity to work with a Columbia College alumnus this summer. Dr. Ali Gheissari is a cardiac surgeon and has volunteered to take a student volunteer intern this summer. If you are interested in this position, please send a letter of interest and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1, 2012
The intern will have the opportunity to shadow members of a cardio-thoracic surgical team during the summer months. The student will be exposed to all aspects of a private surgical practice. This includes participation in a variety of cardiac thoracic and vascular procedures on a daily basis as well as preoperative and post operative patient care rounds. The student will also attend a number of didactic lectures on different medical topics within the hospital and will spend three afternoons a week in the surgeon's office. There will also be opportunities for the intern to participate in clinical research and possibly coauthor a paper. By the end of the summer, the student will have gained a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems and will have experienced the life of a surgeon in a private practice setting.
Dr. Gheissari’s private office is located in downtown Los Angeles.
This is an unpaid internship. Intern will need to have their own housing.
