Summer Internship In Biomedical Research

image of NHLBI Summer Internship studentsThe goal of the Summer Internship Program in Biomedical Research at NHLBI is to expose students to research investigation in a highly enriched environment that is devoted exclusively to biomedical research and training. The Program is open to high school and college, graduate or Medical and Dental Students. Participants join a research laboratory for a minimum of ten weeks between June and August and conduct research in selected areas of investigation under the guidance of an NHLBI intramural research scientist. To augment the training experience, students participate in a Seminar Series at the NHLBI, as well as the National Institutes of Health Summer Seminar Series and Summer Research Program Poster Day.

Applicants must be either US citizens or permanent residents and be currently enrolled full-time in high school, college, professional or graduate school with a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. College graduates are eligible for the summer between graduation and beginning either graduate or professional school. High school students should be at least 16 years of age prior to June 1.  Applications must be submitted online using the link provided for Summer Internship Applicants. While applications may be filed between Nov. 15 and March 1, early applications are encouraged.  We have prepared some helpful hints that provide important information for applicants to strengthen their application.
