**Those students interested in a Parkview & Dupont Hospital internships will complete an application with me, do not reach out to Parkview or Dupont through their website or individually. 

**Don't have room for an internship in your schedule, but still want to gain experience? Parkview is offering clinical & non-clinical Job Shadowing and Observation opportunities. Job Shadowing allows a student to see what it's like to work in a department or in a specific role for 1-8 hours in a single day. An Observation allows for the same experience, but for multiple days, up to one week. See Mrs. Crawford if you are interested in learning more about either opportunity.
