NIH Summer Internship
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is one of the leading biomedical research agencies of the federal government. The NIH offers a variety of summer internships for students, often especially for those who are working towards a master’s degree, Ph.D., or other professional scientific degree. Students who pursue a summer internship with the NIH get a chance to work alongside some of the world’s leading scientists in a cutting-edge biomedical research environment.
The NIH consists of 27 institutes with more than 1200 laboratories; some of the institutes include the National Institute of Cancer, National Eye Institute, National Human Genome Research Institute, National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, and the NIH Clinical Center. Students who pursue a summer internship here will find that the program gives them a competitive edge on their resumes and provides a foundation for what they will pursue in their future careers. In addition to providing students an opportunity to discover how scientific investigating and biomedical research work, the National Institutes of Health also offers a series of summer activities that students are encouraged to take some time out to participate in. Some of these activities are lectures from eminent NIH scientists and career and professional development workshops.
