There will be two additional dates to attend for the Bethesda Campus: June 2nd and 16th. Please register for the appropriate date under upcoming events.


  • If you already have research experience, please attend an OITE Orientation for Summer Interns instead of Boot Camp.
  • If you have little or no research experience, please attend the Science Skills Boot Camp instead of an OITE Orientation. 
  • Your Institute/Center may also offer an orientation. This is NOT the same as the OITE Orientation. Contact your Summer Coordinator for information and be certain to attend.
