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.
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.
The Biomedical Engineering Program is pleased to announce the availability of Clinical Engineering Internship opportunities at the University of Connecticut beginning in the fall 2014 semester. Students accepted into this program earn a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering, which requires a minimum of 15 credit hours of course work and a thesis or 24 credit hours of course work without a thesis.
