Job Description

The Summer Laboratory Science Program at Mayo Clinic offers chemistry, human biological science, clinical laboratory science, and medical technology majors the opportunity to explore career options and gain experience in the clinical laboratory environment. Clinical laboratory work is different from research work in that a patient’s diagnosis, treatment, and health may be directly dependent upon the laboratory testing results. Our scientists are part of an interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals dedicated to patients’ health. In the laboratory, our scientists work with blood, tissue, and body fluid specimens. They perform tests from the simple to the complex, using manual methods and state-of-the-art instruments, and are responsible for the accuracy of the results they generate.
As a Summer Laboratory Science Program participant, you will work in one of our clinical testing laboratories specializing in the areas of biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, genetics, transfusion medicine, anatomic pathology, and hematopathology. You will assist our laboratory personnel in aliquotting, preparing, extracting, and centrifuging biological specimens collected from patients.

This program is expected to begin on June 5, 2013. You will have the choice of making your own temporary housing arrangements in the community. Further details to be provided.
