Current Opportunities

MINT is not recruiting at this time.

Overview 

The Minimally Invasive New Technologies Program provides opportunities for students and guest researchers to apply academic concepts to practical work situations and gain the knowledge, skills and abilities which will provide them with invaluable experience to advance their future career paths. 

Located in Midtown Manhattan, the MINT offices provide an entrepreneurial and creative interdisciplinary environment and the opportunity to work directly with world-leading clinicians, senior engineers, business development professionals and executive leadership.  Our program fosters collaboration and creativity toward the ultimate goal of commercializing medical devices that will advance the field of minimally invasive surgery. 

The MINT Program has established an exceptional model for successful collaborations between higher education and medical device development within the structured environment of Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian Hospital. We offer a number of research opportunities throughout the year for Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering students, MBA students and Clinical Fellows. 

Sample Research Opportunities

Business Development Internship 

The business development internship provides MBA students with the opportunity to draft business plans and take an active role in the business strategy and commercialization of medical devices. This internship opportunity is either available full-time during the summer semester or part time throughout the academic year. 

Engineering Co-op Program 

The engineering co-op program provides an opportunity for students who are enrolled in engineering co-op programs at their respective institution to work with the MINT Program full-time for two consecutive semesters (spring and summer).  The engineering co-op program provides hands on opportunities to work directly with senior engineers on medical device development, ideation sessions and testing. 

Biomedical Engineering Internship 

The biomedical engineering internship provides undergraduate or graduate engineering students with the opportunity to work with the MINT Program on engineering tasks and project development. The biomedical engineering intern works collaboratively with senior engineers and other researchers. To qualify for the biomedical engineering internship, the student must be currently enrolled in an academic program at an accredited institution with a major in biomedical engineering or mechanical engineering and be able to work in New York City during the course of the internship. 

Clinical Research Internship 

The clinical research internship provides first and second year medical students with the opportunity to conduct clinical research on cutting edge medical technology which is being developed at the MINT Program. This internship is part-time throughout the academic year. 

Clinical Research Fellowship 

The clinical fellowship is an opportunity for post-graduate clinical fellows to work directly with world-leading clinicians on research and project development for medical devices. The clinical fellowship is for one year, full-time.
