Summer Job/Internship


I am a pre-med Junior majoring in Biology and possibly minoring in Psychology. Although it is too early to be definitive about it, I think I want to go into sports medicine/orthopedics and I am trying to find a summer job or internship with clinical exposure in this field. Aside from trying personal contacts and friends, what other resources could I use to help my search?

Concerning etiquette, is it considered appropriate to contact a Sports Medicine physician that I don’t personally know (a relative of mine saw him) and explain to him that I’m interested in what he does and that I am looking for opportunities at the undergraduate level in his field? If any of you know of anything or anyone in the Houston area that might be of some help I would appreciate it if you could PM me.

Thanks for the help.
