The Biomedical Statistics and Informatics Internship provides a learning experience for both undergraduate and graduate students interested in participating in the analysis of ongoing research projects conducted at Mayo Clinic.

This annual summer program begins in late May or early June (depending on candidate availability) and lasts a minimum of 10 weeks.

During the Biomedical Statistics and Informatics Internship, you have an opportunity to enhance your computer and statistical skills while working under the direction of a lead statistician or lead bioinformatician.

The Division of Biomedical Statistics and Informatics is part of the Department of Health Sciences Research at Mayo Clinic. The division has a staff of more than 200 professional statisticians and bioinformaticians — 40 with Ph.D. degrees, 75 with M.S. degrees and 95 with bachelor's degrees — and a support staff of 70 programmers. The department also includes the Division of Epidemiology and the Division of Health Care Policy & Research.

These staff members collaborate with investigators from almost every medical specialty, with major commitments in such diverse areas as oncology, cardiology, neurology, endocrinology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, psychology and epidemiology.
