SCRIPPS GREEN HOSPITAL INTERNSHIP
Scripps Green Hospital and SDSU work in partnership to provide a one to two semester internship.
Internship candidates must have the following tests/vaccinations:
2. If you are born in 1956 or after you must show
proof of an MMR, or separate rubella, rubeola and mumps vaccination
in or after 1980. If you need this shot please make sure your TB Testing is completed first. The MMR will interfere with
the reading of the TB Test. Volunteers needing vaccination are responsible for arranging for this with their health
care provider at their own expense.
Accepted students must complete a 2-hour training session scheduled by Scripps Green Hospital and a personal interview with the volunteer manager.
1. Students must document a minimum of 100 hours. (Hours over 60 may be done during vacations before or after the semester).

of the internship. (See Guidelines.)
3. Students must submit a one-page evaluation of the experience itself.
This is a graded course for one unit per semester. Interns are expected to dress and behave professionally at all times.
Applications may be submitted at any time. Copies of applications will be submitted to Scripps Green Hospital for their review and they reserve the right to interview and accept candidates based on their own criteria.
