Metcalf Clinics

Gain experience and grow your network with the Metcalf Clinics program! Metcalf Clinics are co-op, project-based experiences for UChicago students facilitated by employer partners. During the project, teams of undergraduates take a deep dive into their field of interest and build relevant experience. These clinics are a wonderful way to build your research, analysis, and strategic thinking skills. After working on a two-week project, teams will have the opportunity to give a presentation on their results. Students will receive access to coaches, industry experts, and the opportunity to network with successful alumni.

Metcalf Clinic projects will include opportunities in consulting, finance, STEM, and nonprofits. Potential companies include organizations such as:

Alpha Sophia Technologies, BallotReady, Conservation X Foundation, Cornerstone Research, Hollister, IBM Quantum, the National Space Society, North Star Investment Management, Peak6, the Soondra Foundation, and UChicago Medicine.

If you’re interested in learning more and joining a project, please apply on UChicago Handshake by March 29. Students are welcome to work from anywhere in the world on Metcalf Clinic projects.
