Become a WiNtern

WiN awards students an eight-week internship at UT Neuroscience or Dell Medical Neurology in a research or a clinical setting. Students gain significant knowledge about the fields of neuroscience and neurology, hands-on experience, and personal and professional growth. The internship includes a $5,000 stipend so the student can supplement earnings while spending the summer learning.

My WiN internship in 2019 was quite influential to where I am today. It was one of my first introductions to applied engineering and how it can be used to get better results in medicine.

Student WiNternsA Day in the Life

Each WiNtern is assigned to a faculty host and their lab. On a daily basis, she shadows and works hands-on with her faculty host and lab team to understand lab protocol, complete research tasks, and learn how the Scientific Method furthers research in that lab and in the fields of neuroscience and neurology.

Throughout the internship, interns come together for workshops and speaker sessions to broaden knowledge in these fields and to enhance personal and professional development.

After four weeks, the interns share experiences and lab research through presentations and lab visits. At the internship’s completion, each intern makes a final Presentation of Learning.
