The Taylor Collaboration Internship Programs
Research Engineering & Device Development Internship
This internship is a full-time year-long training program aimed to develop the skills of engineers and researchers in the field of orthopaedics. The goal of the program is to provide a structure where the participants are introduced to the equipment, methods, and concepts of orthopedic biomechanics, clinical outcomes, and device design/development.
Participants must be enrolled in, or recently graduated from, a bachelor’s degree program related to the field of engineering, including Biomedical Engineering, Bioengineering, and also Mechanical Engineering. We provide stipends for housing, transportation, and meals.
Monthly Research Rotation Internship
This internship allows for those seeking an advanced degree in a bio-related major such as Biomedical Engineering, Bioengineering, and Mechanical Engineering to get a hands on experience with a biomedical lab for a period of one month. High school students interested in mathematics, science, and engineering are highly encouraged to apply as well! This is an unpaid internship.
Orthopaedic Surgery Research Fellowship
This is a full-time research fellowship program. Fellows gain experience in clinical and biomechanical research under the direction of SF Orthopaedic Residency Program spine faculty. Fellow will attain familiarity and understanding of the research process from protocol to publication developing a wide range of skills applicable to medical innovation and practice. Opportunities exist to observe surgical procedures and attend educational conferences (resident didactic education, spine grand rounds, journal club). 8 to 10 peer-reviewed publications by the end of the full-time research year.
Participants must be US Medical students between M3/M4 (M2/M3 case by case.) Students must exhibit expressed interest in orthopaedic surgery residency. We provide stipends for housing, transportation, and meals.
