2021 Bakken MDC Internship Program

The Earl E. Bakken Medical Devices Center Internship leadership team plans to hold the program in accordance with University COVID-19 guidelines. While we plan to have the entire internship in person, we are able to alter the program to a hybrid format (i.e. some portions in person and some portions online, following University guidelines) if necessary. We plan to continuously assess the situation so we will be able to provide the best possible option of what the Internship will look like this summer. Please let us know if you have any questions!

Feel free to reach out to Steve or Cara with any questions you may have about the program. Thank you for your interest in the program and good luck!

Medical Device Projects

The Earl E. Bakken Medical Devices Center (Bakken MDC) is accepting medical design concepts that need to be realized. Projects must be realizable within a reasonable time span and all funding for materials must be provided by the project administrator. Project submissions will be reviewed by the Bakken MDC staff and matched with student interns who have experience or are interested in the project's scope within medical devices. Initial meetings will be facilitated by the Bakken MDC staff. However, the administrator of the project will be responsible for supervising student work and monitoring the progress of the project. Interested parties can submit their projects. HERE
