The School of Business offers students the option to choose between Track I (Internship) or Track II (Capstone course) for Healthcare Management Bachelor Completer students who live in: Florida, Kansas, Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin. Internships are offered once a year, during the fall quarter.
Students who are interested in pursuing Track I (Internship) should:
1) Connect with their Advisor or Healthcare Management Department Chair, Dr. Jenny Ekern, approximately two quarters prior to being scheduled to take the Capstone course to express interest in pursuing an Internship rather than the Capstone course
2) Discuss Internship option with Department Chair, Dr. Jenny Ekern
3) Locate and secure their internship site
4) Reach out to the Department Chair, Dr. Jenny Ekern, with information about the internship site so that the Department Chair can generate a contract for the internship site to sign. Getting an early start is important, as the contracting process may require weeks to complete.
Make sure your resume is up to date and ready to go. Treat an internship as an extended working interview. There is no guarantee that your internship will lead to an offer for a permanent role, but employers sometimes hire interns. You are welcome to submit your resume for review through Optimal Resume’s Review Center at any time https://rasmussen.optimalresume.com/
