Our Human Resources team will be conducting a live industry chat to present information on the 2018 HPH Health Careers Summer Internship program.  In order to be eligible to apply for the internship, students must be in their senior year, graduating in May of 2018.  Interested students, counselors, and teachers are invited to sign up for the virtual industry chat.  During this session, we will provide a brief overview of the program and students will have the opportunity to ask specific questions they might have in regards to the internship (i.e. application process, what interns do, the different departments that participate, etc.). 

Since its inception in 2004, over 700 students have participated in Hawaii Pacific Health’s, Health Careers Summer Internship. This 6 week, paid internship program is designed to provide high school seniors and college students a rare opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the health care industry. Interns have the opportunity to learn more about hospital systems, interact with experienced health care professionals, and explore a variety of different health care professions. Internships are offered at Hawaii Pacific Health and our network of medical centers in Hawaii, including Kapiolani Medical Center for Women & Children, Pali Momi Medical Center, Straub Medical Center, Wilcox Medical Center, and Kauai Medical Clinic.
