Internship Program

Description

Our paid internship program helps pre-medical or pre-PA students gain hands-on clinical experience prior to applying to medical school or PA school.  Applicants who are selected for the program are trained as medical assistants and help with day-to-day operations in the clinic.  Interns will have the opportunity to shadow and assist a variety of healthcare professionals, including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, nurses, and medical assistants.  These professionals are available for networking and letters of recommendation.  Due to the fact that our interns can participate in providing direct healthcare (with appropriate supervision), the program gives a greater advantage when applying to professional school versus working as a medical scribe or research assistant.  The internship program will commence in June and end in August.  Hours are flexible and we are willing to work with school and sports schedules.  At the end of the program, excellent interns may be offered casual employment at the clinic.  Following one year of employment as a medical assistant, individuals are allowed to take the Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA) Exam.
