Students planning to enter the health or science fields can complement their academic preparation with a range of experiences, such as community service, research experiences and internships. This internship offers you the chance to learn by doing in a setting where you are supervised by a work-place professional, and have the opportunity to achieve your own learning goals, without the responsibilities of being a permanent employee.
The University benefits by the enrichment to its educational program that results from a strong internship program. The University also benefits from the increased number of contacts with the community in which the university is situated, and the greater understanding that results from increased communication between the campus and its community.
