During 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.
Summer Academic Internships
Internships through the Summer Access and Diversity Internship Program will not be available for Summer 2013.
When possible, the University of Memphis Scholarship Committee provides funding for
undergraduate summer internships under the Student Affairs Access/Diversity Support
Awards. These funds helped to provide students with an opportunity for summer internships
both on the University campus as well as with non-profit community partners.
In addition to a stipend, students will receive academic credit for the internship.
Interested students should apply for the program by contacting Jodie Cherry at 678-3448
or email@example.com or see your academic advisor.
