About Internships

An internship is a temporary work experience that allows the individual to get some hands-on, real world, entry-level experience under their belt with the supervision and training of an experienced professional. Some internships are paid while others are unpaid, but the main focus of an internship is on experience. An internship should include learning goals that connect concepts learned in the classroom to real world scenarios in an effort to gain practical experience and help the intern accomplish their career goals. Internships are important because they offer a number of benefits to both students and employers.

Habits of Health

Internship opportunity (with the option to get paid and continue on either part or full-time, if you choose) offering flexible hours and work remotely.

 

Requirements: must have access to a phone and the internet 

 

Description: This evidence-based health system is physician-led. Our mission is to make sure people are learning lifelong habits so they can get off the diet/yo-yo cycle. We accomplish this through a four-pronged approach: 

  1. Health Coach- every client receives this one-on-one personal support, this is what you (as an intern) would have the opportunity to experience (with the help of your mentor) 
  2. Community- because we become like the people we spend the most time with, it's imperative to plug each client into our private online community as well as our weekly community calls so they are each surrounded by others who are also moving forward in their health 
  3. Education- As clients work with you (and your mentor) we will work together through Dr Anderson's habits of health system. These books are designed to reprogram those habits keeping clients from moving forward in their health. The books are equipped to help each client rewrite their story, and develop the power to install habits for the rest of their life 
  4. Simple Structured Nutrition Plans- which are easy to follow, making it possible for clients to focus on the heart and head work required to make lasting changes.

Our Instake Specialists meet one on one with our new clients to establish services with them at the pantry and help refer them to other sources that they may qualify for in the community. As an Intake Specialist, you are the face of our organization and the one who will make the first impression upon our clients. It is vitally important that the clients feel comfortable and understand that they can communicate freely about their circumstances so that we can help them to our best ability. Sharing personal information is not easy to do, nor is swallowing your pride and asking for help. An Intake Specialist must be sensitive and tactful in their approach and tone when speaking to clients. Direct eye contact and phrases like “help me understand” that encourage clients to openly share their situation and feel welcome.     

DUTIES OF AN INTAKE SPECIALIST:    

  • Check in at the volunteer station and check with the pantry manager to see if there are any clients waiting to do an intake. Intakes are done at a client’s first visit and once a year thereafter to recertify if they are still using the pantry services.  
  • We provide the necessary paperwork that contain a list of questions and required documents to complete the intake process. All information provided is 100% confidential and is not shared with anyone outside of Tabitha’s Way.  
  • The intake form includes questions required to be asked by Governing agencies and probing questions to help us identify other possible needs. Only demographic and statistical data are shared with other agencies.  
  • When a need is identified for a service we do not provide, we do provide a referral to another agency or a list of resources for that need. An example of that would be someone needing health care may be given a list of free clinics or health care programs.  
  • Once the intake process is complete and the client is familiar with all our policies and procedures you will assign the client a client card and assist them with checking into the pantry to receive food.

Mountain View Hospital Admin Mentorship

The Mountain View Hospital (MVH) Administrative Internship provides student interns and hospital executives with the unique opportunity to develop long-lasting, mutually beneficial relationships.  This is primarily accomplished by pairing each intern with a mentor from the MVH executive team. The objectives of the program are three-fold: 1) Gain valuable experience working in a healthcare setting, 2) Network with healthcare professionals, and 3) Become educated about current healthcare issues and trends.   

About Mountain View Hospital: As a 124-bed hospital in Payson, Utah, Mountain View Hospital is part of MountainStar Healthcare, which includes seven hospitals and an ever-growing number of clinics, imaging centers, and surgery centers along the Wasatch Front.  MountainStar Healthcare is a division of Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), the largest for-profit healthcare system in the world. As a part of a national and international network of hospitals, Mountain View Hospital is able to deliver the highest quality of healthcare to south Utah County communities.  The Joint Commission, the nation’s premier healthcare accrediting agency, has recognized Mountain View Hospital as a “Top Performing Hospital” for the past four consecutive years.   

Internship Requirements: The program is intended for juniors and seniors, and preference will be given to those with previous healthcare experience.  The minimum GPA required to participate is 3.0.  It is expected that students will dedicate 10 hours per week to the internship.  This includes time spent at the hospital, doing weekly readings, attending networking events, and attending weekly internship meetings.  The program is unpaid, but is for academic credit.  Students will be expected to add 1-3 credit hours to their academic schedule.   The program requires full commitment during Fall/Winter semesters (August to April), with an optional Spring/Summer extension (April to August).  Those who wish to return for a second year will be asked to reapply.   

Experience - Each intern will have the opportunity to add value to Mountain View Hospital by identifying and working on specific projects.  Additionally, a list of tasks and activities is in place for each intern to complete.  These tasks provide interns the opportunity to gain broad exposure to the day-to-day operations of the hospital.

 

Networking - In addition to working one-on-one with hospital executives and attending hospital functions and events, interns are required to participate in two non-MVH networking activities per semester.

 

Education - Besides learning about healthcare first-hand by working in the hospital, MVH interns meet weekly to discuss readings about current healthcare issues and trends.  Local healthcare professionals frequently attend and give presentations at these meetings.  Past lecture topics have included: payment reform, big data warehousing, healthcare finance, developing relationships with clinical staff, medical group management, personalized medicine, and more.

 

Internship Coordinator Responsibilities: The internship coordinator is responsible for the overall success of the program by performing the following: 

  • Recruit, interview, and train high-performing administrative interns

  • Report monthly to the MVH executive team at the executive team meeting 
  • Send monthly updates to BYU HMA presidency via email 
  • Manage Learning Suite and grade assignments
  • Identify and train successor*         

Intern Expectations and Responsibilities:  It is nearly unprecedented for a hospital to allow this level of exposure to students.  As such, it is imperative that all interns demonstrate a high level of initiative and professionalism while accomplishing the following: 

  • Identify and work on hospital-specific projects
  • Complete all of the hospital tasks and activities 
  • Maintain accountability to self, mentor, and internship coordinator 
  • Dedicate 10 hours per week to the internship; 8 of which in the hospital 
  • Participate in two external networking events per semester 
  • Stay current on readings and come prepared to weekly internship meetings

  • Attend a Networking Event- Attend a networking event outside of the hospital.  The HMA club does not count.  Events hosted by ACHE or UMGMA are acceptable.  You may find others as well. 
  • Housekeeping- Work a few hours in housekeeping. This is part of receiving broad exposure to hospital operations. This should be the first matter of business to complete.
