Opportunities for college students

We enjoy partnering with colleges and universities around the Northwest to provide students with educational work experiences. Student experiences vary in nature due to the variety of demands of different educational programs. College students make up Samaritan's largest and most diverse group of students, covering the full spectrum of health care delivery.

Educational opportunities available with Samaritan may include internships or clinical rotations, but vary greatly depending on the specific needs of programs. Students who are required to complete an educational experience as part of an academic program need approval from their respective coordinator or advisor at their institution. After receiving approval, please contact Professional Development before starting the orientation process listed below.

Students must complete a background check and drug screen prior to starting an educational experience. Please use the following information to help you complete this process.

The online orientation consists of reviewing SHS policies and trainings, signing a confidentiality statement and providing immunization records. These records need approval from Professional Development.
