Since 2013 C-SHIP students have completed over 70 internships. These internships and projects range from administering a question survey to clients and patients; attending intake and referral meetings and observing how agency services work together for families; researching and displaying patient information for a clinic waiting room; engaging with senior residents at long term care facilities or with children about oral health, or helping to plan and carry out a community event for a nonprofit.
Internships are an important part of an undergraduate’s career exploration. A recent national survey asked employers to rank order the factors that would distinguish otherwise equal candidates. An internship came in first!
For students, it is a chance to explore a potential career, make connections, attain career readiness skills and better understand the possible pathways to a desired career.
Below is a sample of a few C-SHIP interns and their projects.
