We are now accepting applications for our inaugural class of The Six-2 Crew – a 2-year internship for trainees with an interest in neonatal nephrology. The Six-2 Crew will provide longitudinal mentorship and exposure to the research, advocacy, educational and communication work of the NKC.
Who: Any level of trainee, including medical students, residents and fellows interested in neonatal nephrology. The application form will be open through May 31, 2021. Interns will be selected for the upcoming academic year (July-June) for a two-year commitment. We plan to take 4 interns in our first cohort.
What: Interns will rotate on each NKC committee for 6 months. During each rotation, interns will attend meetings (as able) and will complete activities related to each committee. Additionally, interns will be assigned longitudinal mentors to provide them with mentorship, overall career guidance, and advice.
Why: Early exposure to the work of the NKC, involvement in the work of committees, and networking opportunities. Additionally, interns can seek a letter of recommendation (if desired) at the completion of the internship.
If you have any questions about the internship, or want to talk more about the commitment to see if it would be a good fit, please contact Michelle Starr (email@example.com) or Matthew Harer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
