Baylor College of Medicine is a health sciences university that creates knowledge and applies science and discoveries to further education, healthcare and community service locally and globally. Baylor began its summer internship program in June 2014 and has provided students the opportunity to enhance their personal development as well as their understanding of Baylor and its affiliated clinical and academic partners.
This internship will expose the intern to the administrative roles that support the clinical, research and education missions of the institution. There also will be learning opportunities offered by speakers from different areas of Baylor.
The Internship is sponsored by the Office of the President. Lorie Tabak, chief of staff, supports the program as the preceptor. Anju Bolton, business operations associate, manages the program. Together, they are responsible for the education and development of the intern and provide supervision and guidance during the internship. The internship supervisor will be assigned based on the area of the internship.
Applying: We are no longer accepting applications for the 2021 Summer Internship Program.
Interview Process: If identified to move forward, you will be contacted by the department for an interview.
When will you know if selected? Each department is responsible for its selection so there is no set decision date for candidates. You likely will hear from the department by end of April/beginning of May.
Incomplete applications will not be considered.
