Apply to LHSI

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 over 70 different 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 closed. The 2020–21 application will open in January 2020.


You can apply for our internships in the spring of your first or second year at IUPUI for internships in the fall and spring of your second or third year. Transfer students must have completed at least one semester at IUPUI prior to applying.

This program is for IUPUI students only, and you must be enrolled full time. Transfer students are eligible after completing at least one semester at IUPUI. Students co-enrolled at Ivy Tech or Butler University to make full-time enrollment are also eligible.

Your coursework comes first, and we don't want to affect your grades. Beyond clearing the minimum requirement, there are no bonus points for higher GPAs. Transfer students must have an IUPUI GPA.

To get the most out of this program, you'll need to commit to 10 hours per week for working at your internship site. Some sites are flexible, but you can expect to need about 10 hours a week for work during the academic year.

We do not have summer positions available.

The sites in our program look for a wide variety of majors. We're looking for any student interested in exploring life and health sciences careers.

LHSI Makes a Difference

"Starting my second year of college, I didn't have much in the way of a professional identity. 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 as I prepared for postgraduation life."
