Clinical Engineering

Clinical Engineering Internship


2021-2022 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.
