High School Internship Program

Memorial Health System is committed to providing an environment where students can explore, learn, and grow their future with an internship experience for local high school students. This one-week internship gives high school juniors and seniors in the Mid-Ohio Valley the opportunity to obtain a deeper dive into healthcare careers. Memorial Health System’s goal is to aid in preparing students for their future by providing education through real world experiences, with students gaining insight into the requirements of various positions and making a connection with healthcare professionals.

This opportunity will provide students the ability to explore the wide array of clinical positions within our health system, while providing an interactive field experience to learn about the responsibilities of each position, the growth opportunities in each field, and the education and licensures required for each position. This field experience will help students decide if they have an interest in pursuing an education and a future career in these specified fields. Students will also gain an understanding of careers within surgery, perioperative areas, emergency department, rehabilitation, imaging, inpatient nursing, laboratory, respiratory therapy, and physician clinics. The goal of this partnership is to strengthen both workforce development and college readiness.
