Summer 2020 Virtual Internship




Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many summer biomedical engineering (BME) internships have been cancelled. The Biomedical Engineering Alliance at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic is offering a unique virtual summer internship experience to help replace these lost opportunities.

The internship is expected to require 3-5 hours of participation each week over a 10-week period. Each week, students will participate in the following activities:

  • Seminars focused on undergraduate student interests (careers in BME, graduate and medical school, emotional intelligence, basics on presenting and writing scientific papers, etc.)
  • Fireside chats with leading BME faculty
  • A remote research/design project that can be part of (1) an existing remote research or design project that you have already arranged for the summer, (here are some available opportunitiesor (2) a new design project that will focus on the response to COVID-19. All projects will culminate in an online pitch competition at the end of the internship.  

At the conclusion of the internship, students will receive a certificate of completion and will be able to list this experience on their resume. There is no cost or payment for participation in this program.
