The Health Professions Internship is designed to provide hands-on practical experience to college graduates bound for medical school, physician-assistant school, or nursing school. Interns work directly under the supervision of physician to learn essential skills necessary for a career in health care. These skills include how to take a medical history, how to document and chart an electronic medical record visit, how to document and recorsd a physical examination.
The interns learn how a medical office is operated and essentials that will help them whatever specialty or practice they choose. Interns learn how to present a patient history to a physician, how to review xrays and MRIs, and how to develop a differential diagnoses.
Interns have the opportunity to observe surgery of the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, ankle, and soft tissues. Interns will engage in two research projects with the goal of publishing their projects in peer-reviewed journals or national conferences. The goal of the internship is to help the intern gain admission into professional school.
To this end, the intern will receive period admission counseling sessions with staff, have their professional school application reviewed, and participate in two mock admissions interviews.
Our intership program began in 2012 and has a 100% acceptance rate into professional school.
