The Molecular Genetics Internship is a gateway to hands-on experience in molecular diagnostics in the clinical laboratory. The program gave me laboratory experience and allowed me to merge concepts learned in the classroom with laboratory techniques — to create a skill set that I could use to build a career.

Mayo Clinic provides exposure to the field of molecular biology like no other institution — offering observation of ultrarare case results in a top-notch, quality clinical testing environment.

Ten years after graduation, the knowledge I gained from this internship still provides the groundwork for daily activities in my job as a laboratory technologist, specializing in the development of clinical assays.
