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.

Benefits of an Internship

Is this what I really want to do for a career?

Devoting years of your life and education to a career is a big commitment. How can you be sure that it’s something that you want to do for the rest of your life if you’ve never done it before? An internship can help answer this question by letting you sample the industry without a long-term commitment. A profession may not always be what we think it is and getting your hands dirty with some good old fashioned real world experience is the best way to find out if you’ve found the job of your dreams or just another 9-to-5 that pays the bills. The sooner you are able to figure this out, the sooner you can be on your way to having a fulfilling career in what you’re passionate about.

Make connections with professionals in the field

The old saying “it’s not what you know, but who you know” has some truth to it. A little bit of networking can go a long way, especially in competitive fields, and an internship is an excellent way to build relationships and network with professionals in the industry. An internship can also act as a 3-month-long job interview which is why some employers use internships as a recruitment tool. Do a great job, build relationships, contribute to the company, and when the internship is finished they may not want to let you go. At the very least, they can connect you to others in the field and provide a positive referral which can be extremely valuable. This also gives you an opportunity to get the inside scoop on the industry from people that have years of real world experience and their advice is invaluable when considering your future career plans.

Experience

Experience is golden, and the more experience you have the more valuable you are. Employers are always looking for candidates with experience. More experience means more skill, and more skill means you have more to offer a future employer. But how do you get experience if no one will hire you because you have no experience? An internship is a good place to start. Employers don’t expect interns to have a lot of experience or even any experience. It’s a good place to get your foot in the door. Additionally, the focus of an internship is to get experience. Interns are expected to be responsible, reliable, and professional just like an employee, but the objective of an internship is to get some basic hands-on experience. Additionally, an internship lets you develop or learn some skills that may be much harder to develop in a classroom setting. Think of it this way… reading how to ride a bike and actually riding a bike are two different things. Sometimes the best way to learn how to do something is to jump in and try it out.

Enhance your resume

 An internship on a resume shows a prospective employer that you have some familiarity with the industry including some real-world training. This is especially true if the skills that were developed during the internship are listed on the resume. It can also be an indicator of your committed to your career because it shows you’ve taken the initiative to get some hands-on experience. Additionally, a solid reference from an internship host shows that you’re trustworthy which is so important in today’s fleeting applicant pool. An internship with a respected employer could set you above the competition.

Benefits for employers

  • Increased productivity by having additional help
  • Experienced staff can focus on more advanced tasks while interns handle entry-level work
  • Interns bring fresh ideas, new perspectives, and an enthusiastic willingness to learn
  • Temporary help with no long-term commitment
  • If a business is looking to expand, internships can act as a longer and more in-depth interview process
  • A way to give back to your community

Getting Started

There are lots of different ways to find an internship and lots of different resources. But they typically involve one thing: networking. The right internship is out there somewhere and sometimes finding it is just a matter of asking around. Here are some different ways to find an internship:

Reach out to your dream company 

Think of a company you’d like to work for and reach out. Big businesses sometimes have a structured internship program already established and have a tendency to be more competitive for interns than smaller, local businesses. Research information on their website regarding internships or simply give them a call.  Explain your career goals, your interest in their company, and inquire about internship opportunities. Be personable, polite, and professional. Be sure to get names and contact information to follow-up.

Utilize UVU’s Internship Services 

Talk to your internship coordinator, or browse internship postings on handshake.

Ask faculty & advisors 

These people more often than not have spent some time in the industry and may have some connections. It never hurts to ask, and if you get a good referral, that’s a huge bonus as well!

Friends of friends 

Do you have a friend of a friend with your dream job? An acquaintance of an acquaintance? Reach out to see if they could point you in the right direction for getting your foot in the door to the industry or if they know of some resources to utilize to get an internship. People that are actively involved in the industry sometimes have some of the best information to offer and may be willing to lend a helping hand.

Getting Credit

To receive credit for your internship you will need to take an online course in conjunction with your internship experience. How this credit is placed depends on the major. (Some majors, like Public &Community Health, have an internship class built into the program that students are required to complete. For Public & Community Health majors, this credit goes towards that class. For other majors the credit can go towards an upper division elective.) Like any other course this includes coursework, due dates, and paying tuition. Be aware that 60 internship hours a semester (about 5 hours a week) equals 1 academic credit for Public & Community Health majors. This is important when determining how many credits you’ll be taking based on how many hours a week you can comfortably fit into your schedule and what your internship host is able to accommodate – something you should also establish with your internship host beforehand. Also you need to work with your site supervisor to determine three to four objectives that go under the description area on the internship application for credit. The instructor for the Public & Community Health dept. is Robert Walsh, 801-863-6193, email is walshbo@uvu.edu. Remember that for Public and Community Health students to be elible to complete an internship for credit they must have completed the HLTH 3230 class.

Below is the process for receiving credit for an internship. Please note that you can’t receive credit for past internships that you have already completed.

 1.    Meet with your internship coordinator

Together the student and the internship coordinator will discuss the details of the internship for approval. This includes items such as work responsibilities during the internship, number of credits to be assigned, checking to see where or if the credit can be applied, compliance with UVU policy, and to answer any questions the student may have.

2.   The Online Orientation Video & Quiz

Complete the Internship Orientation Video and Quiz here http://www.uvu.edu/internships/student/orientation.html.

3.    The Online Application for internship credit

Together with the internship host, the student will fill out the Internship Application for Credit, to verify the job duties, scheduling, pay (if any), etc. The student will then sign the form, then it will be signed by the site supervisor, the internship course teacher, then by the internship coordinator. The internship coordinator may contact the internship supervisor to verify the internship and answer any questions the supervisor may have.

4.    Have the internship host complete the Master Internship Agreement. Before a student can intern somewhere we have to have an active Master Internship Agreement on file for the host. If we don’t have an agreement for the internship provider/host the internship coordinator will email a link for the agreement to be filled out and signed by the provider. The Master Internship Agreement is a legally binding contract between Utah Valley University and the internship provider. All internship providers should have a current, signed agreement with the Director of Internship Services at UVU. This document outlines the responsibilities of the internship provider to the intern, and the responsibilities of the intern to both the internship provider and the university. Additionally, the agreement serves to protect both the university and internship provider from improper conduct on either end. This agreement is good for 5 years from the date it is submitted.You can view which employers have completed a Master Internship Agreement on this Internship Providers page.

5.    Register for the course

Once the Application for Credit has been signed by all parties the coordinator will grant the student access in the system to register for the internship course and provide the student by email the Course Registrationh Number (CRN) & section to allow the student to register. Once the semester begins, the student will be able to go into the course via Canvas to access the course content.

6.    Finish all assigned coursework by the deadlines

The student will complete the amount of internship hours based on the number of credits taken (65 hours/semester = 1 credit), finish all course material (papers, evaluations, orientation, hours log, etc.) by the established deadlines with a satisfactory level of quality as deemed by the instructor to receive a grade.

MOUNTAIN VIEW  HOSPITAL PATIENT CONNECTION

Patient Connection

Program Overview

 

Description

            The Mountain View Hospital (MVH) Patient Connection Program is intended to provide valuable experience for both the intern and the various hospital departments. This program has become a branch of the Administrative Mentorship which focuses on the following objectives.

The objectives of the Patient Connection 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. The same objectives hold true for the Patient Connection Program.

 

Experience - Each intern will have the opportunity to add value to Mountain View Hospital by identifying and working on specific projects for their assigned department.

 

Networking - In addition to working one-on-one with hospital managers, nurses, and attending hospital functions and events, interns will be strongly encouraged to participate in healthcare related events outside the hospital. Ex. ACHE or UMGMA hosted events.

 

Education - Besides learning about health care 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.

 

Patient Experience Interns will have the opportunity one day a week to round on five floors of the hospital.  These floors include ICU, Orthopedics, Medical Surgeries, ER, and OB.  Interns will be required to fill out a google form or department sheets that will have questions that are specifically targeting to improving the HCAHP scores for that floor. Training and framework will be provided to prepare interns for rounding on patients so they feel comfortable and provide the best care possible.  Interns will also have the special opportunity to work on projects around the hospital to improve patient satisfaction.  Examples of these from past projects include making a video to show during new employee orientation, making nurses scorecards to track HCAHP scores, and making patient packets to give to incoming patients. These projects give our interns the amazing opportunity to network with many different areas and people in the hospital. 

After completing the internship, Patient Connection Interns may apply for the Administrative Mentorship. They will be given more consideration in the application process but not guaranteed a position. See about the application process under “All Documentation Completed”.

Administrative Mentorship--unpaid

Program Overview

 

Description

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 that they will work one-on-one with during their internship experience.

 

The objectives of the program are three-fold: 1) Gain valuable experience working in a healthcare setting, 2) Coordinate and collaborate with healthcare professionals, and 3) Become educated about current healthcare issues and trends.

 

  • 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.
  • Coordinate and Collaborate- Each intern will have the opportunity to learn the workings of the hospital. Take the opportunity to become the head of projects and to gain valuable experience by implementing those projects. You will be given the opportunity to find a need and fill it. Do your best each day to get the most out of this experience that you can.
  • 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.

 

Mountain View Hospital

Mountain View Hospital, a 124-bed hospital in Payson, Utah, is part of MountainStar Healthcare, which includes seven hospitals and an ever-growing number of clinics, imaging centers, and surgical centers along the Wasatch Front. MountainStar Healthcare is a division of the Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), the largest for-profit healthcare system in the world.

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 and students who show a high level of involvement/initiative. The minimum requirements are a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and a letter of recommendation from an academic reference. It is expected that students will dedicate 8-10 hours per week to the internship. This includes time spent at the hospital, doing weekly readings (you will be assigned 1-2 books to read throughout the semester), attending hospital/networking events, and attending weekly internship meetings. The program is unpaid, but is for academic credit. Students will be expected to add 1-4 credit hours to their academic schedule for this internship. The program requires full commitment during Fall/Spring semesters (August to April), with an optional and recommended Spring/Summer extension (April to August). Those who wish to return for a second year will be asked to reapply for the new year.

 

Mountain View Hospital accepts interns from BYU and UVU specifically, and considers other requests on a case-by-case basis. In order to participate fully, we encourage participants to be members of the HSA club at their university. This internship is highly competitive with only 5-6 openings.

The 2nd and 4th Saturday 10am-12pm

 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: 

  •  1. 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. 
  •  2. 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. 
  •  3. 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. 
  •  4. 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. 
  •  5. 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.
