St. Joseph offering paid internships

Kokomo-based St. Joseph Hospital is accepting applications for up to 10 paid internships for post-secondary students this summer.

To be eligible for consideration, students must be a resident of Howard County or one of the surrounding counties and be currently enrolled as at least a sophomore in an associate, bachelor, masters, or doctorate-level health care program at the time of application. Areas of study may include medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and medical technology. Nursing students must have successfully completed at least one year of clinical rotation before applying. Selected applicants will be required to work a total of 400 hours between May and August of 2014.

“This will be our ninth year for the program and we expect to again receive a tremendous response,” hospital President Kathy Young said. “The feedback we received about our program from past students, their parents and hospital mentors has been consistently positive. We’re very excited to once again offer health care-minded students the opportunity to obtain real-life working experience in a hospital setting.”

Interested students must submit all of the following in order to be considered:

* A St. Joseph Hospital employment application, available online at www.stvincent.org/jobs (find St. Joseph jobs through that portal).

• A current official college transcript

• Three letters of recommendation from current or previous employers or academic instructors

• A 300-word essay clearly specifying the student’s career objective, the reason(s) for his or her academic/career choice, planned graduation date and desired learning objectives of the summer internship experience. Essays must be typed.

All requested documents and materials must be postmarked by midnight on March 6 or hand-delivered to the Human Resources Department by 4 p.m. on March 6 to be considered for the program. Students are responsible for verifying that all materials and recommendations have been received by the deadline. Students selected for further consideration will be contacted for an interview by phone or in person.
