Doing an internship is a great way to expand your skill set and help you get a head start on the competition. Students in one of the six graduate programs under the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences have the option of doing a summer internship, in consultation with the student's program chair and thesis adviser, at a medical center, government laboratory, industrial environment, or a non-traditional setting. Contacts, positions, applications, course registration, course requirements, and grading are processed through the Eberly College of Science Cooperative Education program. There are also options for doing internships right on Penn State's campus!
