Call for Internship Project Proposals

September 23, 2020

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 healthcare problems.

The Office of Academic Clinical Affairs is proud to announce an inaugural internship program that will competitively identify student interns and match them to projects proposed by you, our healthcare system partners. We invite your intern project proposals, or the opportunity to collaboratively develop a project of value to your organization, the intern, and our partnership.

Interns will come from a variety of University of Minnesota programs. Projects can vary in length (e.g., one or two semesters) and time expectations (e.g., 5-20 hours per week). We invite you to submit intern project ideas based on your health system’s needs. Our goal is to match student interns with clinical partners based on shared interests; we will work together through the project identification and intern matching process.

Projects that address interprofessional practice, patient safety, or clinical training issues will be prioritized.

The intern will need a supervisor at your organization, and will have support from our office throughout the internship.

Contact AVP Carolyn Porta ([email protected]) with any questions about this new exciting collaborative opportunity.
