Research Description

Research internship under the direction of Dr. Antoine Khoury at CHOC Children's Urology Center. This is an unpaid internship seeking candidates that can work a minimum of 8-10 hours per week for a duration of 3-12 months. Intern positions are open to those students obtaining course credit. The proposed scope is to gain hands on experience in the field of pediatric and adolescent urology research. Goals of pediatric urology research include finding appropriate and innovative treatment plans for common pediatric urological conditions (such as vesicoureteral reflux, hydronephrosis, and hypospadias). In addition, we aim to compare current surgical and medical care of varying conditions using current accepted patient care standards and making improvements through more cost effective and efficient means without jeopardizing the success of the outcome of care. Interns will participate in research activities such as data collection, literature review, and document preparation to be used in protocol development, publications, and/or presentation. Interns will have the opportunity to interface with practitioners (attendings, fellows, nurses, and other students). Interns are expected to attend weekly urology research rounds and participate in presentation on their related research projects.
