Position description

As a nonprofit organization, Mayo Clinic relies on philanthropy to advance our mission: solving the world's most serious and complex medical challenges - one patient at a time. Grateful patients provide a significant majority of gifts, and benefactors designate gifts to research, education and practice as well as capital projects. High-quality care, the relationship between physician and patient, and many people throughout the organization contribute to our philanthropic efforts.

The primary purpose of the undergraduate internship is to provide an intern with experiences relevant to their field of study and acquaint them with the core principles of fundraising at Mayo Clinic. One or more mentors will be assigned to the intern to provide instruction and guidance and to assess performance. The intern is responsible for observing the functions and processes of the department. In addition, the intern will be given selected work assignments to reinforce the learning experience, to assess performance levels and to provide benefit to the work unit. The intern will be responsible for completing all internship-related assignments for Mayo Clinic. The duration and timing of the internship will be arranged with the intern.
