Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation is pleased to offer research internship opportunities once again this summer for undergraduate premed students and those studying other health care disciplines in an accredited degree program. Internships are designed to give students professional experience in the areas of research and cardiovascular healthcare.Feedback from a 2010 intern: “There is no better place where you can get a holistic view of healthcare while having the responsibility to work on your own research project. It is the perfect opportunity for interactive learning, critical thinking, and relationship building. There is nothing more awesome than getting to be a part of a state-of-the-art, cutting-edge research facility while learning the ins and outs of the healthcare team. The physicians have high expectations of the interns, but they never leave you with a project that you cannot handle. If you want to work hard and learn a lot, this program is for you.”
Internships will be full-time, 10-12 weeks in duration, and offer a modest stipend of $8 per hour and paid parking. All internships will take place on the campus of Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Out-of-state participants in previous years were able to sublet apartments near the University of Minnesota and reported the short-term relocation as being very worthwhile. We regard diversity in the internship program as an important factor in providing a rich learning environment for participants.
