The summer internship program was developed (in 2007) to provide an exposure to medical education for those interested in pursuing a career in medicine. In 2008 we expanded the program due to overwhelming interest from students from around the region. Students are exposed to many aspects of medical education including the Gross Anatomy lab, Patient Simulation involving residents from many specialties at ETSU, and repair and maintenance of the Human Patient Simulators, as well as research and design of new simulation technology.
The internship is open to anyone who desires to investigate what is available in medical education. The two prerequisites are that the student is a Sophomore or higher in college, and has a Healthcare or Biomedical concentration. At this time, we are only accepting four or five interns per summer. Semester internships are available to people who are taking a break from their studies during the normal school year.
