Apply to Our Program

Join our yearly group of 75 interns and work on a professional team in our graduate and professional programs on campus and in hospitals near campus. You'll work up to 10 hours per week during the school year. Experiences are as varied as the internship locations, and you'll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in health and science projects. This is also a great way to grow your professional network.

Applications for the 2019–20 group are now open and are due by Wednesday, March 6, at 8 a.m. Review the qualifications, resources, and application below.

By the end of my internship, I had gained professional work experience, presentation skills, and connections to medical and career services professionals on campus. These things really boosted my confidence as an upperclassman.

Required Information for the Application

Before you start the application, be sure to have the following information ready:

  • Names of two to four internship locations/supervisorsReview LHSI internship projects here. The project list can be filtered into categories by type of location. There is also a search box to find descriptions with your major or area of interest.
        • This program is meant to help students engage with faculty outside of their own academic units. Students will not be placed with mentors in their home schools. For example, public health and health services management students should choose locations outside of the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health and health sciences and kinesiology/exercise science students should choose locations outside the School of Health and Human Sciences.
  • Names and contact information for three references.
  • Resume and cover letter saved with your last name in the file names. This is good to do any time you apply for a job and also helps us keep your materials together.
  • PDF of your unofficial transcript. You can find this in the SIS Student Center. If you are dual enrolled at another university, include a copy of that unofficial transcript as well.
  • Responses to the short answer questions about your career and academic goals and how this experience will help you reach those goals.
