St. Catherine Health Care Internship Description

This 17 week program exposes students to various health careers within the St. Catherine’s nursing home and hospital setting. Each week there are different presentations from the departmental directors providing information about the duties and responsibilities associated with their careers and the educational background required to be trained in their profession. Often the directors bring equipment and supplies they customarily utilize in order for the students to obtain hands -on experience. Some of the areas the students learn about are: respiratory services, speech therapy, nutritional services, pharmacy, maternal and child services, laboratory services, medical services, nursing services, imaging services and patient advocate services. This program runs once a week in the spring semester from 5:00-6:30pm from mid January to mid May. Additionally, students must intern an additional 30 hours on their own time. The St. Catherine’s volunteer coordinator helps you with scheduling these additional hours. Students must provide their own transportation. Seniors receive preference due to the limited openings. Grades are based on weekly journals, timesheets, and projects. It is a requirement of St. Catherine’s that all interns provide a proof of immunization, get two PPD tests and a flu shot.
