OACA interns

2021-22 Call for Clinical Student Internship Applications

August 18, 2021

Our health sciences students learn together, solve problems together, and develop real-world working relationships. By training together, our students learn how to practice interdisciplinary care that can tackle the real-world, truly difficult health care problems.

The Office of Academic Clinical Affairs is proud to launch the second year of our interprofessional internship program, which competitively identifies student interns and matches them to projects proposed by health care system partners. We invite applications for an internship position during the 2021-2022 academic year. Selected students will be partnered on an interprofessional intern team with a partner organization to engage in a project focused on advancing health and education.

Hear from the inaugural cohort of OACA interns.

Interns must be enrolled in any University of Minnesota degree-seeking program and have an interest in health care systems and interprofessional practice and/or education. Internships will occur over the course of one academic year (October through May) and will average 5 paid hours/week. Selected interns will benefit from health care system exposure, mentorship, leadership development, and engagement with the Office of Academic Clinical Affairs and broader interprofessional efforts.

Finalists will be scheduled for brief interviews in late September, and selected interns will be notified by early October. Anticipated start date is October 15.

Application deadline: September 15, 2021

Contact Co-Directors of Interprofessional Education, Cheri Friedrich ([email protected]or Sara North ([email protected]) with questions.
