High School Summer Internship Program 2024

Internships are very crucial part of a student’s life. Completing an internship can help you better understand the daily work of professionals in your career interest. This is an opportunity to see first hand the environment in which you may someday wish to work. 

This internship program can help you to determine if it is a good match for your interests, skills and values. It also allows you an opportunity to ask specific questions about that career field and interact with local professionals. The employees of Ferrell Hospital would like to give you the opportunity to help you explore your interest in healthcare. We are offering a 8 week program where you can job shadow with professionals 2 days a week to get direct experience in the field of your choice.
