Interns, co-ops, and apprentices

Develop your talent

Whether you are a student or switching careers, learning on the job is a great way to get started in the fast-growing medical device industry. It puts you right where the action is, providing learning opportunities not available in any classroom.

At Tegra Medical, we love developing new talent. We work closely with you to make sure you have all the instruction, guidance and resources you need to develop your potential.

Engineering students

Tegra Medical works with interns and co-ops from a range of schools, including colleges, community colleges, vocational colleges, and vocational high schools. For example, in our Massachusetts facilities we’ve had interns from Blackstone Valley Tech, Assabet Valley Tech, and Bristol-Plymouth Regional Tech, and co-ops from Wentworth, Northeastern and Diman Regional Vocational.

At the Tegra Medical facility in Hernando, Mississippi we work with interns and co-ops from schools including Brigham Young University, University of Mississippi, Mississippi State, Christian Brothers University, and Northwest Community College. We also offer a unique program where we allow our own employees to be interns and learn new skills.

Engineering students will find that at Tegra Medical they gain valuable experience while working on customer challenges in the entire product lifecycle, from prototyping to full-scale production. For students interested in high-level, skilled manufacturing, we offer hands-on experience in areas such as CNC Swiss machining, precision grinding and Electric Discharge Machining (EDM). Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities offer many opportunities to learn about lean manufacturing, Six Sigma and many engineering, quality and regulatory standards.

Our unique four-year toolmaker apprentice program accepts two students who are required to enroll in engineering programs at local colleges. The company pays their tuition and a salary, then promotes them to journeyman toolmaker positions when they graduate.
