Non-Clinical College Internships - Volunteer Services

Internships are defined as a work experience for which you will be receiving course credit through a college, university or technical/ training program. These experiences usually involve a minimum of 10 hours per week in the hospital for the course of a semester. You must be entering your Junior or Senior year for this semester.

Timelines for the Summer and Fall sessions are:

Summer Semester

Submit internship specifications (see below) with resume by April 11, 2014
Placements will need to be finalized by May 16, 2014

Fall Semester

Submit internship specifications and resume by July 25, 2014
Placements will need to be finalized by August 8, 2014

Part of the process is a personal interview.  If you are not able to come for the interview during the summer, please make arrangements to do so before your summer break, sending the information requested.

If you are interested in applying for an internship at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, please email Volunteer Services at  volunteer@wihri.org with the specifications listed below and attach a copy of your resume.  To consider your request we need all the following information within the timeframe specified above:

  •     Dates of Internship: Start and end dates
  •     Number of weekly hours required
  •     Course Name

If we have an internship that might suit your skills, interests and goals we will contact you to schedule an interview. You can expect to hear from us within 5- 7 business days when you submit your application by the deadlines outlined above.

If you are looking for hospital based experience for resume building or personal interest, without the credits, you should register for a Volunteer Interest Session to learn more about volunteer opportunities at the hospital.
