Student and Graduate Opportunities

Penn Highlands Healthcare offers opportunities for college students and graduate medical students to get everyday experience and gain valued skills in your profession. We are doing our part to make sure families today – and in the future – get the care they need. We are helping to train tomorrow’s nurses and physicians through our programs.

Summer Nurse Internship

The Summer Nurse Intern Program provides students with an opportunity to relate nursing theory to clinical practice. Our program is open to both sophomores and juniors and offers you the opportunity to work directly with a trained preceptor, 1-on-1! Our program is designed to aide our interns in developing time management skills, problem solving techniques, as well as gain experience and confidence in performing technical skills during a six week period.
