BME Going Pro

We offer industry-relevant training that helps students evaluate their options and gain hands-on experience.


The department surveyed biotechnology and biomedical industry leaders to determine how we could best help doctoral candidates determine if they wish to pursue a career in industry and, if so, help them narrow their choices and improve their competitiveness. The program we developed, Going Pro, has three components: 1) Industry Internship: stipend support during their two-month industry internship (internship must be approved by the BME graduate program committee). 2) Mentoring: students meet with a BME industry professional throughout their training. 3) BME 6056 BME Going Pro: 1-credit course course focused on professional development and BME industry.

Application process and timeline: Graduate students who have completed their 2nd year of the biomedical engineering PhD program and successfully passed their comprehensive exam are invited to apply. See here for an application form.  Please contact Dr. Donald Griffin with any questions.
