SkillBridge Internship Program

Mayo Clinic currently offers SkillBridge internship opportunities at our large medical centers in Minnesota and Arizona, or in a community-based practice with Mayo Clinic Health System in Wisconsin.

Mayo Clinic in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) provides military service members, who are within 180 days of separation from military service, with internship opportunities in a variety of different roles. The goal is to provide service members with opportunities to learn and train at Mayo Clinic’s world-class environment, as they prepare to transition from the military to the civilian sector.

Internship Objectives:

  • Provide career skills training and hands-on experience opportunities in the world-class environment of Mayo Clinic
  • Gain understanding of the Mayo Clinic workplace culture, and how it’s mission-accomplishment focus, and RICH TIES values align with military values
  • Explore allied health career pathways that enable an informed decision
  • Experience onboarding and integration into the civilian workforce by partnering with a Mayo Clinic veteran employee as a mentor

 

Process

Step 1: Receive verbal approval from your military chain of command to participate in the program. To learn more about the DoD SkillBridge program and to learn how to apply with your service branch, visit the website here: https://skillbridge.osd.mil.
