Undergraduate, graduate students with a concentration and interest in health education, complementary and integrative medicine or community and public health may apply for a full-time internship. Our observer program is designed for national and international healthcare professionals and clinicians interested in learning more about integrative medicine in a comprehensive cancer center.
Integrative Medicine (IM) Program Internships:
Internship projects are determined based on both the current needs of one or more of the components within the Integrative Medicine Program as well as individual student interests/needs.
Examples of intern responsibilities include, but are not limited to the following:
- Research of medical literature, use of electronic resources, as well as journals and books to retrieve appropriate information (instruction will be given by individual mentors)
- Solidifying information into summary documents such as:
- CIM options that are mentioned in the literature
- Review of options for positive vs negative information
- Summary of suggestions
- Attending weekly Integrative Medicine Clinic Team Meetings to get the basic idea or complexity of the IM consultation process.
- Participation in regular activities of the IM Program
- Participation of small projects related to the IM Web site maintenance and update
- Additional participation and involvement will be individualized to the student's interests and ability to address issues within the program
- A final project presentation will be conducted by the student for the IM staff detailing their internship projects
Evaluations will be based on the quality of the summary documents, general attendance and participation on assigned student activities.
