Health Services Summer Placements

The Health Services Summer Internship program is a unique Learning Experience developed by CAREERS: The Next Generation in southeastern Alberta. This program allows qualified grade 11 high school students the opportunity to explore a health-related career and develop employability skills. During the summer months, students work with a health services provider for eight weeks and earn one high school credit for every 25 hours worked as well as a wage. Some participating health service providers offer a second summer internship for selected grade 12 students.


This program is only available for entry in the student's Grade 11 year. It is for students with a genuine interest in a career in the Health Services Industry. This is a very competitive program and interested students must maintain an excellent academic record and be an Excellent School Citizen.
