Former Bioengineering Intern at Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program
about 3 years ago
Working as a SIMR bioengineering intern was a great experience that was different day to day, with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Stanford experience. Commute using the Marguerites and working in Stanford facilities was an awesome experience with plenty of opportunities to rub shoulders with giants.

Bioengineering labwork is very flexible at Stanford, but it also depends on the demands of the specific lab you are placed in. My experience was extremely enjoyable and formative, and I learned many hands-on skills that have allowed me to pursue further internship opportunities here at Berkeley. Hours solely depend on your lab project, so time commitment will vary day to day; some days I worked for ten hours, while some days I didn't need to come into the lab at all. However, finding funding can often be a challenge if you wish to be compensated for your work. Unless you have been accepted to a program, getting funding may be an issue (as it was for me).
