Eli Lilly and Company has developed its second medical student education program, an internship for future physicians. The Lilly Medical Student Intern Program, the second phase of its medical student programs, offers opportunities for medical students between their first and second years to work alongside healthcare professionals in the pharmaceutical industry to gain knowledge and experience in several areas, including preclinical research, clinical trial development, medical affairs, regulatory affairs, bio-ethics, and patient safety.
Six students from Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine will be the first to participate in the intern program at Lilly’s Indianapolis headquarters. Students will expand their knowledge of the industry by spending time at other facilities, including Covance and Elanco, and participating in team-building activities with other summer interns across the company.
This is the second medical student program launched by Lilly this year. In February, Lilly announced a new partnership with Tulane University School of Medicine to launch the Medical Student Rotation Program, a four-week program for fourth-year medical students. The 10-week Lilly Medical Student Intern Program will run from May through August.
