Internships inspire members to action.

There’s nothing like real-world experience to round out a resume and inspire collegians to make their mark in the world. Kappa Delta offers a variety of internship opportunities for members.

KDF Internships Body

Orthopaedic Research Internships

Each summer, the Kappa Delta Foundation offers an opportunity for four Kappa Delta collegians to intern at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee, one of the leading orthopaedic research centers in the country. This internship is a great addition to KD’s long-standing support of orthopaedic research through the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

With direction by Kappa Delta alumna Karen Hasty, Ph.D., and other acclaimed orthopaedic researchers, interns work on a basic science research project and participate in a weekly research data conference and journal club. They also attend orthopaedic surgery training conferences given by faculty from Campbell Clinic, an internationally recognized orthopaedic clinic.

Please note that upperclassmen with science or biomedical engineering backgrounds are preferred applicants. Housing is provided by the foundation, and interns receive an expense reimbursement.

For more information, contact the foundation.

Applications are closed for 2016. Please check back in the fall for next year’s information.

Founded in 1998, the program provides adolescent girls, 11-13 years of age, with opportunities for independent thinking, skill-building, problem-solving and the development of their artistic talents.
