All HCM students will complete an internship, 2 credit hours, giving you the opportunity to acquire practical experience in health administration or policy. Our commitment to excellence in undergraduate education has allowed us to establish strong relationships with many healthcare organizations in Illinois and other states who welcome our interns. The internship allows students to apply the skills and knowledge learned in class to real world situations. You complete your education with self-growth and health care and with a growing network of contacts to help you after graduation.
Here are all of materials you will need to prepare for selecting and completing your internship. Timelines/dates are strictly enforced. If timelines/dates are not followed, internships will be delayed until the following semester. During internship, failure to follow procedures/dates/submission of materials will result in failure for the course. If you fail the course, no repeat of course is allowed. This is a required course to graduate from the HCM Program.
Please download all files and read and complete them carefully. Packets are also available from the HCM Coordinator. Begin your search early to be certain you have an available site.
