Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) is offering an Undergraduate Summer Internship Program providing students with a chance to explore career interests through targeted work assignments, mentoring, job shadowing, and a lecture series.
Students will complete a six week unpaid, non-clinical internship in various departments. Interns will be required to provide 15 to 20 hours of service per week. Schedules are flexible with the exception of Monday, which will include scheduled group educational sessions.
“For the second year, we are offering these internships for students to understand the rewarding career of working in these areas while helping to educate them with projects that are innovative and essential to understanding the business of health care, said Denise Kish, LNHA, Organizational Development and Service Excellence Director. The internships will consist of working with seasoned professionals, conducting research projects, and attending valuable training essential for workplace skills not necessarily taught in college.”
The program is open to students currently enrolled full-time in a four-year undergraduate program. Students must have completed at least one year of college; have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better; have a career interest in the health-care industry; complete and submit the application and letter of interest; provide proof of a two-step Mantoux by their physician by Tuesday, June 3; commit to the program June 9 to August 1, with an exception for a vacation week, if requested; attend General Orientation Monday, June 9; and be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays.
Internships are offered in Organizational Development/Human Resources, Food and Nutrition Services, Health Information Management, therapeutic patient activities, Finance and Information Management, Rehabilitation Therapy, Marketing and Development, social work, nursing administration, health-care administration, and mental-health care administration (full continuum of care – not a counseling internship).
Each unpaid internship will provide students with a transportation stipend once they have completed no less than 90 percent of the committed hours.
