The St. Francis Medical Center (SFMC)
Volunteer Services Internship program is selective program which provides an opportunity for college level
students to receive hands on experience working in a health care environment.
We ask that college students commit to 100 hours of service during the summer
months to allow an opportunity for career awareness and “hands on”
experience. This is an unpaid internship. Student interns will work in a variety of
placements to obtain exposure in a number of areas within the hospital
setting. Students will be required to accomplish
the following during their internship.
available to work May 29th through August 10th
available for a 4 hour orientation during the week of May 21st
a minimum of 100 hours during the
a minimum of 8 weeks and at least 12 hours weekly. A vacation of up to 2 weeks
is permissible during the internship but that would be in addition to the 8 week
flexible hours. Students will receive a weekly list of regular volunteer vacancies
and absences which they will be able to choose from.
in a minimum of at least 4 different placements for at least 12 hrs each. This
will provide more exposure to the healthcare environment.
We will not be able to provide written
or verbal confirmation that your internship has been completed until you have
logged in 100 hours. Any paperwork or documentation the student
requires from the SFMC Volunteer Services Department must be presented at the
start of the internship.
Selection of a student intern in this
program will depend upon the student’s related experiences, demonstrated
abilities, good interpersonal and team building skills and the ability to work
independently. Students interested in pursuing a health care related field will
be given higher priority. All students
must turn in a volunteer internship application, after which reference checks
will be sent out. An interview will be
part of the application process. After acceptance, interns will be required to
attend a 4hour internship orientation and complete 2 TB test series. When
requirements are completed, and all required documents have been submitted, the
student may begin on the job training for volunteer placements.
The deadline for submission of
Internship applications is April 4th, 2012.
