The Healthcare Improvement and Innovation in Quality (THINQ) Collaborative is a group of undergraduate and graduate students working with physicians at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center to conduct clinical research and make proposals for the betterment of care quality.

Our program involves research, physician shadowing experience, speaker events from individuals in various healthcare fields, as well as discussions about diverse topics in the healthcare industry that affect patients and physicians. We shadow patient rounds, collect data, present research, and review papers on healthcare in order to propose solutions.

We have had previous opportunities to present at several national undergraduate research conferences and submit manuscripts to undergraduate research journals. Additionally, we offer mentorship, leadership and professional development, and the opportunity to view medicine through an intersectional perspective.

We are currently recruiting members of all years and majors for our THINQ 2022 Summer Internship that will later transition into a year-long research fellowship. Applications will be due on FRIDAY, APRIL 1 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Applications open on March 7 at 7 p.m. and will be available here:
