Apply to LHSI

Join our yearly group of 75 interns and work with faculty and staff in our graduate and professional programs on campus. You'll work for up to 10 hours per week from late August to early May. Experiences are as varied as the host locations, and interns have the opportunity to immerse themselves in research and professional projects. This is also a great way to grow your professional network.


Applications for the 2018–2019 group are closed. The 2019–2020 application will be open in January 2019.

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 post-graduation life."

~Kamilah Walters, LHSI 2013-14, IUPUI Graduate 2016
