How can I find a health-related internship for this summer?
I was planning to stay on campus this summer and do research, but due to COVID-19, my research program has been cancelled. I’ll now be spending my summer at home (in Las Vegas). I’m really struggling to find pre-med or health-related internships in Las Vegas and was looking for some assistance with that #COVID-19 #health-care #premed #internship
I would reach out with my college counselors and professors with other internships for the summer. If possible, volunteer at local blood banks because many are struggling right now to meet the needs of patients.
What I have been recently doing is reaching out to non-profit healthcare programs or organizations in my area. You should do the same for your LV area. If you know relatives, friends, or others that are involved with the healthcare system, you should ask them questions and what places are available or will be available this summer. I also look up internships using this website called Chegg Internships. This website has a list of internships in a variety of programs, ranging from CVS Health to Walgreens. Not sure what field of medicine you are precisely looking at. I've attached the link below:
Here is the link: https://www.internships.com/app/search?position-types=internships&context=seo&seo-mcid=39229357696088878744540190240179558658&remote=false&keywords=healthcare&location=las+vegas%2C+nv
I would also create a LinkedIn account. LinkedIn allows you to connect with other companies and organizations that share similar interests with you. Every day I receive several notifications of a whole list of job positions, internships, and volunteer services. I originally made this account for a class because we were told to for a grade. But it is one of the most life-changing decisions I've made.
Hope this advice helps. Good luck with your search!
The COVID19 pandemic has opened up many opportunities in the healthcare field. You could volunteer in your community, local place of worship, and in the field of your interest. I researched your question and below is a link on 2021 Healthcare Internships. Best of luck to you!
