Purpose

The Summer Health Care Intern Program brings students and healthcare employers together, giving students experience in a healthcare environment and employers the opportunity to become more involved in their community.

Participating hospitals, medical clinics, nursing facilities, home health agencies, assisted living residences, and physicians employ students for 6-12 weeks.

This opportunity is seeking a statewide nonprofit organization that will oversee the program, not individual providers that would like to provide internships. The recipient will award grants to hospitals, clinics, nursing facilities and home care providers to establish secondary and postsecondary summer healthcare intern programs.

Eligibility

Eligible organizations must be statewide nonprofit organizations representing facilities where students will serve their internships.

Internship providers may be hospitals, clinics, nursing facilities, and home care providers.

Interns may be high-school juniors or seniors and post-secondary students enrolled in a Minnesota educational institution (or Minnesota residents enrolled in an out-of-state program) are eligible. Post-secondary students must be enrolled, or plan to be enrolled, in a two- or four-year healthcare degree program, with the intention of completing the program.

No more than one half of the total number of students selected to participate may be from the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area.
