VISN 17 Center of Excellence
The VA Center of Excellence Research Program (VA-CERP) is a two-semester research internship for students entering their Junior or Senior years at Baylor University or Tarleton State University. The program is designed to help students gain research experience in a clinical research setting and prepare for graduate school, medical school, or post-baccalaureate careers. The internship class begins in the Fall semester and requires a 10-hour per week commitment, of which eight hours are spent gaining hands-on research experience, one hour is dedicated to attending didactic trainings, and another hour is devoted to reading and writing activities.
Past students have assisted with the following activities:
- Data entry
- Screening study participants
- Reviewing research articles
- Observing diagnostic assessments
- Assisting with grant applications
Applicants must be currently enrolled at Baylor University of Tarleton State University. Applicants should apply through their university's application portal.
