Now, about the Clinical Lab Internships:
Season's Greetings from Mayo Clinic!
We wanted to share with you and your students that we will have opportunities for summer student internships in the clinical lab setting again in 2012. Last year Human Resources changed the computer system and we now have an electronic application instead of the paper applications. Students will be able to start applying January 1, 2012 when the SLSP job posting goes live. Students may visit this web site for more information: http://www.mayoclinic.org/
Students must have ALL required documents (i.e. unofficial transcripts, resume, etc.) at the time of application. If something is missing, the application should be saved as a draft, do not submit if the application is not complete. If the application is not complete, it will automatically be rejected.
It is a very competitive program. We usually have about 125 applications for about 18 positions. The program starts the first week in June and goes to the end of August. The application deadline for our summer lab science program is Friday, February 24, 2011.
