Non-Clinical Student Programs
The Hospital offers non-clinical internships to provide students affiliated with a variety of educational disciplines the opportunity to apply traditional academic classroom learning in the work setting. A non-clinical internship includes no direct physical contact with patients.
All student internships are unpaid, unless otherwise noted. Student interns must be enrolled in state-accredited, college-level coursework and earn units of credit authorized and conferred by the educational institution of attendance. In addition, all educational institutions that provide student interns to the Hospital shall have a contractual agreement with the Hospital. Paid internship opportunities will be posted on the Hospital’s job board.
Requests for placement within the Hospital’s internship program must originate with the educational institution on file. Once a representative from the school submits a request, a member of the Recruitment Services team will work to secure placement within the department requested. Please note that all internship placements are based upon department availability and submission of a request does not guarantee placement within the program.
Once a request has been approved or denied, the student intern as well as the educational representative will be contacted by Recruitment Services and notified of the outcome. If a placement has been secured, the student will be directed to this site to complete information below under "For Students."
