Hopkins-HBCU Biomedical Engineering Pathway


The Hopkins-HBCU Biomedical Engineering (BME) Pathway is a structured year-long internship program designed to equip undergraduates with skills and preparation for biomedical engineering research careers. In collaboration with Johns Hopkins University, selected Morgan State University and/or Coppin State University students will engage in mentored research with Hopkins BME faculty.

The Hopkins-HBCU BME Pathway's mission is to demystify biomedical careers and prepare participants for future graduate studies.

There are three primary components to the Pathway.

Spring semester - Onboarding

  • Expectation setting
  • Student participation in lab meetings

Summer recess - Research

  • 10 weeks with stipend (amount TBA)
  • Project tasks, skill-building, and data collection

*Fall semester - Reporting

  • Student-directed data analysis and synthesis
  • Scholarly publication process training

*There is potential to earn course credit at home institution.

Application Deadline: March 1, 2024
