Encouraging interest in STEM is one of our top goals at the Fogarty Institute. And that starts with offering opportunities, which is why Fogarty has partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP) to show them the fields of medtech and entrepreneurship firsthand. For example, next summer, we will be offering the chance for BGCP college students to join the Lefteroff internship program.
The Lefteroff internship program, with its focus on mentorship and education, is a true reflection of the ideals of the Fogarty Institute. Each year, we are honored to host these bright young minds as they explore the potential for a career in the life sciences. The graduates represent an important legacy, which is why we are always keen to follow their progress.
There’s nothing more inspiring than working with interns and feeding off their curiosity and eagerness to learn more about the life sciences industry. That’s why the Lefteroff Fellowship remains one of our favorite programs here at the Institute.
Now in its fifth year, it continues to evolve, thanks to our expanding collaboration with El Camino Hospital physicians,
