I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA).
The interview process consisted of a a tour of the facility and discussion of the internship. This was followed by a group interview. Attendees were asked to introduce themselves and were then asked a difficult question. The internship director recorded answers and concluded the tour. This portion was optional given that the majority of the application was online but is strongly recommended.

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA).
I received an email from the department head asking me to contact their secretary to schedule interviews. I was interviewed by all PIs and statisticians (separately) in that department. They mainly asked me to provide more details about my previous research experience, like what models were used in analysis, and what are the limitations of your study.

I applied online. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in May 2015.
Went in for Interview and met with the lab manager, my potential mentor and the PI separately. They were very informative about the position and answered my questions in full details. They asked me for a list of references after the interview but apparently never contacted any of my references.
- Favorite research experience and why? What do you know about our lab? Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital (Boston, MA) in April 2015.
Very long and tedious with little promises. I had to keep following up and leaving messages but no one got back to me on the same day. I feel as if it took so long because I asked for a high salary and they wanted to see if they could find a candidate who wasn't asking for as much.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
I was initially contacted via email to set up an interview. I was living remotely at the time, and they were very open to a Skype interview to avoid travel. The interview was conducted via Skype, and was very straightforward. I essentially walked them through my resume and experiences and answered a few other basic questions. Overall the interviewer was very laid-back and it felt more like a conversation than an interrogation.
