Students & Trainees

Please note that due to COVID-19, we are not hiring students/trainees for summer 2020.

The Heart Centre Biobank provides an ideal training and learning environment for undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students. Students have exposure to a wide range of research activities including day-to-day operations of the Biobank, data collection, obtaining histories from families, reviewing intake questionnaires, medical records, and data entry. Students have an opportunity to develop and pursue projects within the larger framework of the Biobank, gather and analyze data for their project, and submit their results for presentation.

If you are interested in working or volunteering with the Biobank, you can look for opportunities through the Institute of Medical Sciences (IMS) Summer Undergraduate Research Program and the SickKids Summer Research Program (SSuRE).

We also place students at provincial expansion sites across the province, and encourage applicants from outside of the GTA.
