Professional Opportunity (for current juniors)
ATTENTION JUNIORS!: check out the Biomedical Engineering Summer Internship Program (BESIP) and the Summer Internship Program (SIP) at the National Institute of Health (NIH) for an awesome summer opportunity to conduct cutting-edge biomedical research projects under the best PI’s!
Applications reopen in mid-November of this year and we highly recommend that you apply. Not only is this an amazing resume boost, but it will also help you develop important skills that you’ll serve you for the rest of your life (especially if you’re planning to go to grad school)! If you would like to get more information about the program or need advice/ tips for the application, do NOT hesitate to reach out to Ajay Thatte (PhD candidate at UPenn, UT BME ’21, and former BESIP intern) at email@example.com – he’s more than happy to help you! Let’s get some Longhorn rep at NIH!!!
**Really important note: If you apply to BESIP and your application is not accepted, your application gets opened up to the general SIP applicant pool. I believe you can select this option when you fill out your application. I know a couple alumni who didn’t get BESIP but got SIP because a PI liked their work and research interests. So please do not get discouraged by the competitive nature of BESIP. It is not the end-all be-all!
