CRISSP About Photo

“CRISSP is the ideal program for students interested in research and/or medical careers, because it serves as a gateway to new opportunities.”


The CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP) is a 10-week internship designed to inspire undergraduate students to pursue careers in pediatric research and academic medicine through training in theoretical knowledge and research as well as critical exposure to pediatric-focused career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty.

The goal of CRISSP is to provide a transformational summer by inspiring students to explore, create, discover, and innovate in areas related to child health and wellness.

We welcome students with diverse backgrounds whose worldview will be expanded by learning together.
