The Lisa Krivickas Summer Internship Program at the Healey & AMG Center for ALS at Mass General offers students an exceptional opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the clinical research and care of people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as "Lou Gehrig’s Disease." ALS is a rare disease in which motor neuron cells die. As these cells die, the body experiences progressive weakness of the limb, facial, and diaphragm muscles. In the United States, approximately 5,000 people every year will be diagnosed with ALS, and about 25,000 currently live with the disease.

Working in a world class Neurology department alongside clinical staff, interns will support the activities of the MGH ALS Multidisciplinary Clinic and the Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI), including learning how clinical trials are structured and run, performing general office and research duties, and shadowing clinical and research staff. Interns are also involved in projects that support their educational and career objectives.


The Healey & AMG Center for ALS accepts applications from undergraduate college students. Applicants must be able to work independently and as part of a team and must demonstrate respect and professionalism in a clinical setting.
