Position description
The Biomedical Ethics Research Program at Mayo Clinic seeks GREP applicants for a post-baccalaureate research experience in empirical bioethics research. Students will participate in educational activities and conduct bioethics research in a mentored environment.

The Biomedical Ethics GREP program is designed for individuals who have completed a bachelor’s degree and plan to attend graduate school, law school or medical school. In addition to conducting bioethics research, GREP students are eligible to take graduate-level courses through the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and shadow clinicians in nearly every area of the clinic. This paid position is ideal for students interested in a “gap year” between their undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Following this program, past GREP students matriculated into top medical and laws schools throughout the U.S.

2. Resume/CV that includes your major, relevant coursework, honors, and related experiences
3. A 5-10 page writing sample (such as a course paper), preferably on a topic in biomedical ethics
4. Current unofficial college transcript
5. Two letters of recommendation from research mentors or undergraduate professors (addressed to Dr. Richard Sharp, Program Director). Letters should be emailed directly by the professor/mentor to bioethics@mayo.edu


This position has an anticipated end date of 7/31/2024.
