The Biomedical Ethics Research Program sponsors several post-baccalaureate research assistantships for students interested in empirical bioethics scholarship. The position is ideal for students interested in a gap year between their undergraduate and graduate training programs. Our post-baccalaureate trainees have matriculated to top medical and law schools throughout the country.

The post-baccalaureate research assistantship is a paid position that's part of the Graduate Research Employment Program (GREP), which provides students throughout Mayo Clinic with an opportunity to conduct research in a mentored environment for 1 to 2 years. Trainees are expected to dedicate 40 hours a week to their research projects and related activities.

Post-baccalaureate trainees contribute to projects at multiple stages in the research process. They develop research skills that include empirical research methods, study design and data collection, such as semistructured interviews, surveys and focus groups. Trainees also gain skills in qualitative and quantitative data analysis and scholarly writing. They develop a basic understanding of the field of bioethics. And they establish professional relationships with peers, colleagues and mentors in their areas of interest — connections that can last beyond their time at Mayo Clinic.

The post-baccalaureate program offers direct mentorship from faculty affiliated with the Biomedical Ethics Research Program. By working closely with experienced bioethics researchers, trainees develop critical thinking and analysis skills at all stages of the research process. Through the use of individualized personal development programs and biweekly check-ins, trainees improve their capabilities and set meaningful goals for their time at Mayo Clinic and beyond.
