Opportunities for College Students

We enjoy partnering with colleges and universities around the Northwest to provide students with educational work experiences. College students make up Samaritan’s largest and most diverse group of students, covering the full spectrum of health care delivery.

Internships & Practicums 

Are you enrolled in a program that requires an educational or clinical experience to graduate? Internships and practicums provide students with the opportunity to obtain academic credit in a health care degree program. The submission deadline of this request must be a minimum of 30 days prior to the desired date of the experience. Students interested in completing an internship or practicum for academic credit must submit an Internship Request Form

Job Shadowing

Are you interested in shadowing a health care professional? Job shadowing is an activity that allows students to explore various professions in healthcare. This is a short-term experience which offers no academic credit and is hosted by professionals to help students gain an insider’s view of a career field. The submission deadline of this request must be a minimum of 30 days prior to the desired date of the experience. Students interested in this opportunity can complete the College Job Shadowing Application. OSU students must submit the application through Handshake, the OSU Career Development Center job board.

Onboarding & Clearance Process

If your application is accepted and approved, you will be provided with instructions on how to complete the clearance process specific to your program. We suggest that students give themselves 30 days to complete this process. Do you have more questions? Contact Samaritan Student Services for more information.
