High School and College Internships

SWCAHEC provides unpaid internship & shadowing opportunities for high school students interested in learning about health professional careers, non-profit organizations, or leadership roles.

Regional Science Fair

SWCAHEC participates in the judging of middle and high school science projects and offers one or more travel scholarships to the annual SWCAHEC Health Careers Camp or those who win for their health-related projects.

LINK Internships

SWCAHEC will participate as a mentoring and internship site for Animas High School, LINK (Leading Internships for New Knowledge). Students complete a project-based internship in the spring of their junior year. Students are paired with professional mentors who provide experience in their fields. In turn, interns complete academically rigorous projects at their internship sites. The project will be completed during a three-week period, when students will be at their internship sites 30-40 hours over the five-day work week.
