Recently, neuroscience majors have completed research internships at Stanford University, University of Iowa, University of Colorado Denver, and University of California, San Francisco.
Most years, neuroscience majors participate in the prestigious Texas Medical Center Summer Research Internship Program in Houston. At the top-ranked MD Anderson Cancer Center and other
institutions in the Texas Medical Center, they work with professional mentors and peers from top schools around the country.
Students have also participated in the Denver internship program where they worked at the University of Colorado and Craig Hospital, which specializes in rehabilitation from brain and spinal cord
