Internship Success Stories

Stephanie McKinneyDuring the time at my internship I have learned how things work in a facility such as Case Management Inc. I started off shadowing and learning from my Field Supervisor, but now I am also more involved and hands on with the patients. I have learned that the duties of a case manager go beyond the Case Management facility itself. I am managing children to adolescents and this means not only do you work with the children but also with the parents. This could mean that in addition to having a session with the parent and child you may also monitor the child at school, follow up with the teachers and do visits in the home to monitor the environment and parent-child-sibling interaction. Being an intern I have already learned so much that will definitely help me when I become a Medical Case Manager.

Types of Internships

Across the campus students are enrolled in a variety of types of internships. Consult with your academic advisor regarding the types of internships related to your area of study. See the college/departmental internship contact information for faculty or staff responsible for internships in your area of interest.

If your department does not offer academic credit for an internship experience or if you have already maxed out your internship hours within your major, you may choose to enroll in UNIV 4000 Community Internship.
