Making every moment count for BME Master of Engineering students.
BIOME is a paid internship program that gives BME Master of Engineering students real-world experience developing a medical device, either with a local company or UVA Health. A two-month gap between the spring semester and the summer session offered the perfect timing for an internship.
Partner organizations include the UVA Coulter Translational Research Partnership and CvilleBioHub. Both organizations were able to provide matching dollars to offset interns’ salaries. In its first year, all students were matched to a paid internships, and many of the host companies were so impressed by the interns that they extended the internships into the fall, giving students the time to make a sustained contribution.
