2019 Interns

Meet the 2019 Interns

The 2019 class of research interns consisted of nine new interns along with Monique North, 2018 intern, who returned to serve as Lead Intern. In continued tradition, we were able to select our interns from a very strong pool of candidates from across the U.S. Each completed an extensive application and was vetted by a dedicated selection committee comprised of physicians and MHIF staff.
