The practicum between Northern Michigan University and the Mayo School of Health Sciences Molecular Genetics Internship opened doors for me that otherwise never would have been possible. The experiences from this program are unique in that Mayo Clinic is on the cutting edge of science and medicine … more advanced than any other facility. This means students who complete the program have the opportunity to experience the latest laboratory techniques, assays and physician requests that are not yet available in other hospital laboratories.
There are no other laboratory facilities that can so completely prepare a molecular technologist for the vast opportunities in the world of molecular biology and laboratory sciences. This program has provided me with hands-on experience in cutting-edge technology. Because of this opportunity, I have a career with endless growth and advancement — and a job to which I look forward to every day.
