Research Internship Program Supporters

Each year, students from around the country apply for an opportunity to be part of the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation’s research internship program. This cutting-edge educational experience is made possible by the generous contributions of individual donors, local foundations and industry organizations who share in the belief that hands-on experience is critical for tomorrow’s leaders. Financial support from donors means interns can work with both a staff and a physician mentor to learn about the research process and cardiology. In addition, contributions make enrichment experiences such as guest speakers and field trips possible.


Our sincere thanks to the following generous corporations, foundations and individuals that have helped to underwrite the MHIF Research Internship Program.
