Student Experiences

Job Shadows and Internships

Part of our role in living out our mission of: Improving health and well-being in partnership with our members, patients and community is to offer student experiences. Students at Hutchinson Health will become familiar with our values of Excellence, Partnership, Compassion and Integrity during their time with us. We look forward to providing a learning environment that will benefit our community and future generations.

Types of Student Experiences include:

  • Job Shadow: Learn about a particular profession by accompanying an experienced worker for a few hours as they perform a job. This experience helps the student decide if the profession is a suitable choice.
  • Internship: Provides real world experience to those looking to gain the relevant knowledge and skills required to enter into a particular career field. These experiences are typically done to satisfy college requirements for graduation. They are relatively short term in nature with the primary focus on obtaining on-the-job training and taking what’s learned in the classroom and applying it to the real world. Internships require an executed contract between HH and the affiliated school which may take a few months to complete, so submit your request early.

We require a lead time of the following prior to your desired experience date:

  • Shadows – 2 weeks
  • Interns – 8 weeks

Due to current contractual obligations with colleges, we do not accept requests for the following student experiences:  NP, PA, MD, DO or other advanced provider
