Summer School of Medical Imaging

The summer student research program, jointly hosted by the Lakehead University Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies and the Thunder Bay Regional Health Research Institute, offers a unique research experience that showcases the graduate environment in Medical Imaging as a prospective career path for undergraduate students. Within this program, Lakehead University and the Health Research Institute provide topical tutorials and a seminar series, and host an end-of-summer research project competition. The summer employment term runs from May to September.

What's in it for me?

The Summer School of Medical Imaging provides a paid research position. Students work under the supervision of Lakehead-Health Research Institute scientists to complete projects in their field of interest. These projects are related to the scientist's research theme and often make real contributions to advancements in Medical Imaging technologies. Students who are successful in obtaining summer employment work in their supervisor's lab and must attend the weekly Summer Student Seminar Series to gain exposure to a variety of research areas and topics in the field of Medical Imaging. Social events are organized to encourage networking between students.


Students must be enrolled in a university program and have maintained at least a "B" average in their most recent year of study. Students holding a visa are eligible only if the visa permits.
