Internship and Career Opportunities

Departmental Resources

The department recommends that students visit the Career Services website or office to learn about current internship opportunities. The University of Pennsylvania is also a member of BMES Career Connections.  Students graduating from member universities can search BME-AII’s national database of summer internships/research and full-time positions, which include opportunities all over the country.

BME-AII’s database is accessible by members only. Students can obtain a username and password from the Bioengineering department office.

University Resources

Penn also offers numerous resources for students seeking summer internships or full-time employment after graduation.  If you haven’t done so already, contact Career Services to meet with a career counselor, who can tell you about all the resources available to you.  Some of these resources include:

  • HANDSHAKE, a searchable database of current positions available for Penn students and alumni and on-campus recruiting.  For additional information about this site, please contact Career Services.
  • Programs and Workshops, including resume and cover letter writing, interview preparation, graduate school panels, pre-health and pre-law workshops, and more.
  • Penn Alumni career networking
  • Recommendations (Credential) Service, which is a service to manage disseminating your credentials to potential employers or other parties.
