Does your organization want to take on an important project but you’re short on staff?

Would you like more capacity to address a programatic need?


Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center has offered our College Student Healthcare Internship Program (C-SHIP) for almost a decade, and this year SVTAHEC will be offering a new terrain of remote micro-internships for those actively pursuing work experience in healthcare. Internships at this tier will exist in the form of research & development projects that can span from one week to one month (5- 40 hours); each seen as a valuable opportunity for a student who is looking to address health needs in the community while personally developing technical career skills. These short-term, paid, professional assignments are meant to offer engaging work-based learning opportunities within the local healthcare workforce community.

Recent projects include:

  • Developing online infrastructure for assessing and supporting the rural elderly living alone
  • Working with a recovery service to develop online wellness resources for people in recovery
  • Developing at-home exercise and healthy eating information packets for children and families.

SVTAHEC looks forward to providing students and healthcare professionals an internship experience that benefits both parties. While traditional in-person internships aren’t available in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re working to adapt this alternative work experience to sustain productivity and keep everyone safe & healthy. In the age of technological advancements, health & wellness organizations can provide projects that can be completed anywhere, all while continuing to serve the public and improve rural health networks. If you are looking for an intern to assist your organization with expanding their online resource capacities, please contact our Health Professions Resource Coordinator, Susan White for more information-
