What Every Science Student Should Know
NIH Student Alums Co-author Book
Two former NIHers are among the co-authors of What Every Science Student Should Know (University of Chicago Press, 2016). Andrew H. Zureick was a trainee in a summer internship program (SIP) in the National Eye Institute in 2010, and Yoo Jung Kim was a summer intern at the National Cancer Institute (2012) and an Intramural Research Training Award fellow at the National Human Genome Research Institute (2014–2015).
The book, written by four medical students who are graduates of Dartmouth College (Hanover, New Hampshire) and former editors-in-chief of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science, aims to help aspiring scientists navigate the college experience, choose a major, master study skills, do scientific research at the undergraduate level, find a job, and continue to love science.
“I know this is something I personally wish I had read before my SIP experience,” said Zureick, who graduated from Dartmouth in 2013 and is now a medical student at the University of Michigan Medical School (Ann Arbor, Michigan). “I imagine motivated SIP interns would likewise derive great benefit from it.”
“The book was originally inspired by my experiences at the NIH,” said Kim, a 2014 Dartmouth graduate and now a medical student at Stanford University School of Medicine (Stanford, California). “Some of the students interviewed for the book are also former NIH interns.”
“The ‘National Institutes of Health’ appears five times in the book,” said Zureick. “And one of these mentions is a plug for the NIH Summer Internship Program.”
