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

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 several paid internships in the summer and additional unpaid internships during the academic year depending on faculty availability to serve as mentors to selected interns.

Eligibility and Application

Our internship program for high school students remains on hold until January 2023. We regret that we are unable to offer internships at this time. Please check back periodically for updates on opportunities for the winter/spring 2023 semester.

Undergraduate Internships

Each summer, the Division of Medical Ethics offers two paid internships for undergraduate scholars with 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 during the fall and spring academic semesters. 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. Learn more about the internship programs, and check back in mid-May of 2023 regarding the next application cycle. For questions about our internship, contact Ayden Eilmus at

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.
