  • If you have an interest in science, running tests, working with specimens….AND reporting lab findings sound interesting to you… shadow a Medical Technologist!
  • Shadowing an X-Ray Technologist will allow you to see films being developed that capture images that will allow physicians to make correct diagnoses! If you have an interest in CT/MRI, Radiation Therapy or Ultrasound, consider the Radiology internship.
  • You may be watching a therapist administer meds and breathing treatments on patients or teaching a child how to use an inhaler when you shadow a Respiratory Therapist!
  • An IV pump is alarming, call lights continue to blink, the patient in room 10 needs more pain meds, the patient in room 20 needs to go back to bed…this is what you may experience when shadowing a Registered Nurse!
  • You will watch therapists help their patients recover or develop and maintain their daily living and work skills when you shadow a Physical or Occupational Therapist!
  • Providing information to patients about medications and their use; being in charge of the accuracy of medication orders and appropriate dosages are the duties you will shadow as a Staff/Clinical Pharmacist intern!

The deadline for the 2024 High School Summer Internship Program was April 22nd. Please check back here in Spring 2025 for more information on next year’s High School Summer Internship Program.
