Summer Pre-Clinical Internship At Rush Hospital

This is an 8 week summer program where selected MX​C students participate in shadowing Rush clinicians at Rush Medical Center.  Students spend one day per week at Rush and rotate through different clinical sites throughout the summer.  

Upon completion of this course the student are expected to:  

  1. Describe the role played and tasks performed by healthcare professionals or researchers being observed;
  2. Report the pathophysiology of selected patients or the scope of biomedical investigation being observed;
  3. Explain the mechanisms on which the treatment modality is employed by the healthcare professional or the working model that the researcher formulates for designing his/her study.
  4. Reflect on how personal belief, attitude, behaviors and skills affect one’s decision-making process in pursuing health sciences related careers.
  5. Analyze those factors that impact an individual’s effectiveness as a member of healthcare providing/research team.

To apply, please submit a copy of your CCC transcripts, a recommendation form (attached in the application packet) and a personal statement to Dr. Chijju Huang (chuang16@ccc.edu).  Please download the IS299 Application packet.docx (click here)and follow the instructions.  The deadline is April 7th.To learn about the details and dates of attendance, please download the course syllabus

In 2015 summer, we piloted this​ collaborative program between Rush Medical Center and MXC. ​Five Malcolm X College (MXC) Biology students were selected to participate in an independent study course offered through a joint effort by Rush University and MXC (Dr. Chiju Huang). This course was designed to help students to explore various biomedical careers including Respiratory care, X-Ray/CT/MRI, Clinical Nutrition, Ultrasound, Physician assistant and Research in Anatomy. These students came from diverse backgrounds that are traditionally under-served or under-represented in the healthcare professions. Throughout the summer Ms. Laura Vasquez worked closely with clinical directors And Dr. Williams at Anatomy Lab at Rush Medical Center to provide an up-close, intensive learning opportunity. In addition to shadowing clinicians or participating in Anatomy lab, these students joined online discussions weekly to report and comment on one another’s experiences.  In each report, students were able to describe the roles and tasks performed by healthcare professionals or researchers, provide a brief overview of the pathophysiology in observed patients, reflect on how personal belief, attitude, behaviors and skills affect one’s decision-making process in pursuing health sciences related careers and analyze those factors that impact an individual’s effectiveness as a member of healthcare providing/research team.
