Supervising: the intern must have a designated site/project supervisor who has the time, interest, and skill to devote to the intern.

Training: the intern participates in a program-wide orientation; the preceptor is expected to follow its own protocol when on-boarding the intern.

Mentoring: organizations are expected to help support the intern as she/he works on developing select career readiness competencies and learning about core rural healthcare topic areas.

Job Shadowing: each internship is required to spend at least 10% of its time in job shadowing activities; this is central to the career exploration aspect of the internship
