Internship Program

Lefteroff Internship Program

In honor of Tracy Lefteroff, the Fogarty Institute has developed a summer internship program for undergraduate and graduate students. Tracy Lefteroff was an avid supporter and former board member at the Fogarty Institute. His commitment to mentoring and educating the next generation of students, entrepreneurs and innovators in life sciences will be carried on through this program.

At the Fogarty Institute, we believe in education that lasts a lifetime. That's why we have designed the Lefteroff summer internship program for college students. We want to pique their interest in this fascinating field and provide valuable on-the-job experience for young people who are just starting to explore career options.

Now in its fourth year, our internship program is thriving. Each summer we host U.S. and international students, and introduce them to the extraordinary world of medical technology. Our hands-on program offers students the opportunity to shadow and work on projects with our startups and medical technology partners, learn from the best in the industry through our mentorship program, and receive guidance from industry experts on their best career paths and choices.

The exposure gained from interacting and learning from inventors, physicians, lawyers, engineers, regulatory consultants, investors and other professionals, offers our interns invaluable knowledge and experience that helps shape their future career decisions
