Valley Children's offers non-clinical internships in an effort to provide students affiliated with a variety of educational disciplines the opportunity to apply traditional academic classroom learning in the actual work setting. A non-clinical internship is one that is defined as having no direct physical contact with patients.
All student internships are unpaid, unless otherwise noted. Student interns must be enrolled in a state accredited college level coursework and earn the units of credit authorized and conferred by the educational institution of attendance. In addition, all educational institutions that provide student interns to Valley Children's shall have a contractual agreement with Valley Children's. (Paid internship opportunities will be posted on the job board which can be found by clicking here.)
Requests for placement within Valley Children's internship program must originate with the educational institution on file. Once a request has been submitted by a representative from the school, 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 receive a link with instructions for completing the necessary paperwork.
