Education

Seasoned scientists and those wanting to become scientists commit to a lifetime of learning. Always aiming to enhance their understanding of the world, scientists engage in a number of educational endeavors, such as internships, throughout their careers. Texas Biomed is committed to supporting those interested in pursuing a career in science by offering a variety of internships and outreach programs.

2020 Virtual Interns

It is our goal to provide all interns with a rich learning culture that encourages ongoing development of skills and knowledge. These internships are usually in the lab or in our administrative departments, such as Finance, Communications, Research Support Services, etc.  This year they will be held virtually.  Not every department offers an internship every semester or in the summer. Spring and Fall internships are on a rolling basis, while our summer internship programs have a set start and end date.


Collegiate Internships

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and maintaining strict social distancing and safety protocols on campus, we are currently offering the Texas Biomed/SNPRC Summer Virtual Internship. This virtual internship will prepare interns for a future career in STEM by providing interns with best practices, tools, and techniques on career planning, plus much more. All interested students must complete an application. The program leadership will select the first 20 qualified students who apply to participate in the program. This is an unpaid internship. Interns will receive a certificate of completion if they meet the requirements.  Click here for more info.
