Clinical Experience and Internships

Professional schools expect applicants to have firsthand knowledge of the professional field they wish to enter, so it is important to acquire clinical experience through internships or employment. These endeavors will hone your understanding of the career you have chosen and provide essential focus for your planning.

Clinical internships in the health professions can be performed during J-Term, the regular semester, or during the summer. Speak to the Director of Pre-Health Programs or to your pre-health advisor to learn how to obtain a clinical internship.

There are also many discipline-specific and health-related off campus internship and fellowship opportunities, which you can find listed on the MHC Fellowship page. The College provides various kinds of funding to support student summer research and internships.
