Clinical Research Internship Study Program (Florida)
The Mayo School of Health Sciences (MSHS) Clinical Research Internship Study Program (CRISP) is a well-defined, structured program for college students to participate in clinical research. The program is a great way for students to test their inclinations toward careers in medicine, health care and science. Students will be placed with a physician mentor to work on a clinical research project.
The goal of CRISP is to provide promising college students, interested in careers in health care and/or research, an opportunity to work with Mayo Clinic physicians to gain experience in clinical research.

The ambulatory facilities provide clinical services ranging from primary to specialty care, and advanced procedural facilities.
The inpatient facility, Mayo Clinic hospital, has 214 beds and provides comprehensive clinical services, including surgical and medical intensive care units, specialized solid-organ transplant units, and advanced cardiac and neurosurgery facilities. The state-of-the-art Birdsall Medical Research Building is a center for neurological disease research. The Griffin Cancer Research Building was completed in 2001 to support oncology research.
