Hospital Internships for High Schoolers?

Hello! I'm a junior who's really interested in pursuing a career in the medical field. I've been looking into high school hospital internships but I'm struggling to find any in my area. Does anyone have experience with hospital internships and where I might find one?

Hi there! It's great to see that you're interested in exploring a medical career through hospital internships. Although I can't suggest specific internships in your area without knowing your location, I can share some general tips.

First, reach out to local hospitals, clinics, or even doctor's offices to inquire if they have any internships or shadowing opportunities available for high school students. You can usually find contact information for their HR departments, volunteer offices, or education coordinators online.

Next, check for local science or healthcare-related organizations, which may occasionally have internships or events available for high school students. Additionally, your school's guidance counselor or STEM teachers may have connections or knowledge about internship opportunities in the medical field.

Finally, don't forget about online resources like CollegeVine and internship-specific websites. Here's a post that may help: https://blog.collegevine.com/medical-internships-for-high-school-students
