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.
High School Internships
The High School Bioethics Project introduces rising juniors and seniors from backgrounds historically underrepresented in bioethics to the central concepts of bioethics. Interns have the opportunity to engage with professionals in bioethics, public health, healthcare, the biotech/pharmaceutical industries, patient advocacy, law, and other areas, and develop potential mentor relationships that can continue beyond the internship.
Eligibility and Application
The application period for summer 2023 internships has ended. Information about future internship opportunities will be posted here, so please check back occasionally for updates.
Each year, the Division of Medical Ethics offers two paid internships for undergraduate scholars from backgrounds historically underrepresented in bioethics, providing them an immersive and highly educational experience in the field. We hire two undergraduate interns to work with us for an abbreviated academic year, from October 1 through April 30. Qualified interns do not necessarily need previous classroom or workplace experience in bioethics, but they should have related interests and a desire to conduct academic research. The application for the 2023–24 internship program is now closed. Please check back in spring 2024 for information about the 2024–25 internships. For general questions about our internship, contact Ayden Eilmus at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The undergraduate internships are available with our Working Group on Pediatric Gene Therapy and Medical Ethics (PGTME) and Working Group on Compassionate Use and Preapproval Access (CUPA), and all applicants will be considered for both positions.
