Who We Are
UCSD Health Sciences is a $1 billion dollar plus organization encompassing 16 departments, 2 professional schools (School of Medicine and Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences), 2 hospitals, and various other programs and units.
What We Offer
The UCSD Health Sciences Student Apprenticeship Program offers internships to UCSD undergraduates preferably with upper division standing (more than 90 units completed). The program allows undergraduate students to explore career options, gain practical experience, make professional contacts and apply classroom learning to work settings. This invaluable opportunity will provide interns with transferable skills applicable to both a career at UCSD as well as other organizations. Most internships are on an unpaid, volunteer basis, but the option of completing an internship for academic credit is also available through the Academic Internship Program or your major department depending on the internship.
Applicants interested in obtaining academic credit for the internship should contact the Academic Internship Program or their major department for more information. Once selected for an internship, it is the intern's reponsibility to contact the appropriate office (AIP or major department) to setup the academic credit portion of the internship if eligible.
To search for available internships, please visit the Port Triton site.
To apply for an internship, please submit your cover letter and resume as separate attachments using the supervisor contact information (if provided in the job posting). If supervisor contact information is not available, please submit your cover letter and resumes to vchsHR@ucsd.edu before the dates specified. Please reference the internship number in the subject heading. If you are applying for multiple internships, please send separate e-mail applications for each internship.
