Medical Ethics Internship Program

NYU Langone’s Division of Medical Ethics offers internships for high school and college students. Interns collaborate on ongoing projects with faculty and participate in division activities in research ethics, sports ethics, transplant ethics, allocation of medical resources, and clinical ethics.

As an intern, you get a broad range of experience, including the opportunity to work on literature reviews and analyses, edit manuscripts, and develop resources for our High School Bioethics Project. Interns typically work 5 to 10 hours per week in the fall or spring semester, or 10 hours or more per week in the summer, for 4 to 8 weeks.

We offer 3 paid internships in the summer with a stipend of $1,500 each, and additional unpaid internships depending on faculty availability to serve as mentors to selected interns.

Eligibility and Application

We are looking for candidates with strong writing skills and an interest in pursuing bioethics as part of their careers. Applicants must be at least 16 years old when they apply.

To apply, please provide a CV, a short statement of around 250 words explaining why you wish to intern with the division, and a letter of recommendation. Writing samples are encouraged, but not required. Email all application material to Kelly McBride Folkers, MA, research associate, at with “Internship” in the subject line.

We accept applications year-round for unpaid internships during the academic year and by early April for the summer. A committee of faculty and staff in the Division of Medical Ethics reviews applications and selects interns.

Interns are expected to comply with NYU Langone human resources requirements for new volunteers, including medical clearance and a background check.
