Graduate Internships

Clinical Engineering Internship

2014-15 Clinical Engineering Interns

The Clinical Engineering Internship is intended for M.S. students enrolled in the BME program. It offers an in-depth, rigorous, clinical experience that matches the engineering expertise gained in the classroom. The primary objectives of this intense internship are to:

  • Provide BME graduate students exposure to hospital organization and administrative functions.
  • Permit BME graduate students an opportunity to apply engineering techniques to patient care and hospital-based research.
  • Provide substantial experience working with hospital personnel, including administrators, nurses, technicians and medical staff.

Overview of Clinical Engineering Education at UCONN The internship includes a stipend for each academic year and a full tuition scholarship.  Summer support is also available at many of the hospitals.  Health care benefits are not included in the internship.  See the BME Graduate Handbook for detailed information about this program.
