Career Internships

With support from the UF College of Medicine, our BMID Fellows have the opportunity to spend several weeks exploring a biomedical career path of their choosing. The concept is to model scientific internships after clinical shadowing experiences where our Fellows can experience day-to-day life in an unfamiliar research environment. Our Fellows have been immensely creative using this opportunity to augment their training and set themselves apart post-graduation.
