Internships

Biology internships at BYU-Idaho, although not required, are strongly encouraged, especially for students interested in continuing their education in hopes of going to medical or dental school. This page and the others that follow are designed to assist you in some of the questions you might have as you begin your search.

Remember that in all cases, it is the student's responsibility to find his or her own internship. However, faculty and the college internship and career services coordinator are good resources to discuss available internships.
