Biology majors participate in various internships. Some recent examples are internships at the State Bureau of Investigation, City/County Bureau of Identification, GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis. Students interested in careers in healthcare are guided through their search for shadowing opportunities and volunteer opportunities. Recent students have spent time in physical therapy practices, at Zaytoun Orthodontics and job-shadowed at Raleigh Foot and Ankle clinic.
