      Quillen’s gross anatomy lab has, since 2011, given a select number of undergraduate students an opportunity to intern in the lab. This internship allows students hands on experience with cadavers and an in-depth look at anatomy’s relevance for medical students. Though most of our interns have been students at ETSU, we encourage students from all universities and colleges to apply.

We welcome all students over the age of 18 to apply by filling out our application form:

Feedback from Current Interns:  

“I was drawn to this internship experience because of its unique opportunities to delve deeper into gross anatomy. I learned a lot of great clinical techniques, which we then implemented into our knowledge of organ systems during dissections. This experience was not only relevant to my future goals, but further enhanced my interest in pursuing medicine. I completed this internship with a better sense of confidence concerning my abilities in obtaining a medical degree.”     – Lauren Miller (King College)

“My internship in the Gross Anatomy Lab allows me to continuously learn about the human body through hands on practice. It is literally the best way for me to learn and is extremely enjoyable for me!”   - Molly Becker (ETSU- Nursing)

“ The internship was definitely not a monotonous experience of arriving and leaving at the same times, doing the same jobs, but rather a semester with something new every day. I have been able to meet and collaborate with others in a variety of fields and expertise, which is not only applicable towards my future in biomedical engineering, but gave me a different perspective on medicine in general.”
                                                                                                    - Bryan Chan (Cornell University)

“Being able to actually have hands-on experience with human dissection was amazing. I never dreamed I would have this opportunity until PA school! Just knowing that I was a vital part of keeping the anatomy lab functioning was extremely rewarding."   - Josh Lawson (ETSU)

“I've really enjoyed being an intern at the anatomy lab. The best part has been getting hands on experience through dissecting, working on projects, and suturing. What I have gained during my time here has been invaluable.”   - Luis Mejia (ETSU alumni, Medical student at Quillen College of Medicine)
