Applied Anatomy Internship Program
An internship with the Seattle Science Foundation (SSF) is an unparalleled opportunity to gain career-preparative experience with unique access to anatomical tissue and technology. Interns will interact with, assist and observe physicians, scientists, technologists, engineers, and medical device and pharmaceutical industry professionals as they collaborate in our state-of-the-art Bioskills laboratory (multi-stationed simulated operating room). Interns will have specific daily laboratory responsibilities related to preparing for anatomy workshops with the intent of providing professional transferable skills. They will also be involved in cadaveric specimen preparation and observation of scheduled courses. Additionally, interns will be assigned a specific project, due at the end of the seven week term. The expectation for the project will be to create a "standard operating procedure" manual for one of our flagship courses. While this is an unpaid internship, an added "perk" to the resume-building experience itself, is that interns will have four different shadowing opportunities scheduled with various specialties outside of SSF to expand their career exposure.
Please Note: Applicants may apply through the Seattle University Career Center.

The Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS) was created in 2011 to address unfilled seats in the high-demand sectors that drive our economy. Businesses and the Washington State Legislature joined forces to fulfill the promise of better education and career opportunities for Washington students. Together they have created a unique public-private partnership, with significant support from founding partners Boeing and Microsoft and matching dollars from the State.
This first-of-its-kind program supports Washington students from low- and middle-income households to attain bachelor’s degrees in high-demand fields including science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) and health care through scholarships of up to $22,500 as well as professional development, skills-building workshops and genuine industry exposure to help increase the rate at which students enter our state's workforce.
