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.

All students must receive approval from their respective coordinator or advisor to move forward with an internship or job shadowing experience. Upon approval, every attempt will be made to secure an experience, however placement cannot be guaranteed.

Internships: Students interested in completing a course required internship as part of an academic program must contact Professional Development for further direction before starting the orientation process listed below.

Job Shadowing: Students interested in exploring health careers independently can complete the Samaritan Job Shadow Application. Job shadowing is a career development activity that will allow you to explore potential careers in healthcare.

Once a placement is secured, Professional Development will provide direction on completing the process below. Please use the following information to help you complete this process.

The clearance process can take up to 30 days to complete. Please plan accordingly; you will not be able to begin your experience until the required steps are completed.
