After being selected for the STEPS Program and completing the Introduction to Biomedical Research Seminar you will be placed in a paid biomedical research internship in the Denver area. Many students interested in gaining advanced degrees know that with the competition students face in getting into graduate programs biomedical internships are now a must have. Our program allows students to explore their interest in science while getting paid and gaining valuable experience to help further their careers and education.
Each internship rotation is a total of 160 hours. Most interns do two rotations and a select few complete a third. Interns make $11.75 an hour and can work up to 30 hours a week during the school year and up to 40 hours a week during breaks. Schedules are set between the student and the lab supervisor they are paired with. Our number one goal is ensuring our program participants success, so while we encourage our interns to work at least 10 hours a week while school is in session we will try to work out a schedule so that grades remain a priority.
