HPN Summer Internship Program (HPN-SIP)

Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience offers the largest neuroscience teaching facility in the state of Hawaii. Our mission is to give back, mentor and nurture the future of our Hawaii healthcare leaders. Since 2009, over 260 students have gained valuable experience through our program. The 2019 HPN-SIP cohort included 30 students from the high school to the graduate school level. In our 8-week intensive program, interns have the opportunity to interact directly with our multidisciplinary team of doctors and to experience working in a clinic setting. Additionally, interns choose a therapeutic area to research for the duration of their program and present their research in a Summer Symposium at the end of the program.

Applications for the 2020 program are now available. Please reference the application below and submit no later than 24 APR 2020. The expected 2020 cohort will be 30 students. Applications are accepted on a rolling-basis and will be closed when the cohort is filled. For further inquiries, please email Catherine Mitchell at
