Summer internships for 2019

The first link below is a list of summer internship opportunities aligning with the end of the Northwestern spring quarter. Some of these listings are open to Northwestern students only, while others seek candidates from across the nation. 

We encourage you to research each opportunity you find interesting and check in with your Health Professions Advisor if seeking advice on the content of your application materials. Each program has specific eligibility requirements, so be sure to read those carefully. You may also be asked for your resume, recommendation letter(s), responses to admission questions, etc. 

Note, program admissions staff and faculty are often interested in your ‘journey traveled,’ essentially what it has taken to get where you are, currently, and how their program will further your journey. So, take some time to reflect on your journey, past, present and future.
