Baycrest Summer Student Internships in Innovation and Aging Deadline: March 9, 2018

Feb 5, 2018

The Baycrest Centre for Learning, Research & Innovation in Long-Term Care is pleased to offer a limited number of paid Summer Student
Internships in Innovation and Aging

Undergraduate students in health science programs are invited to apply for a competitive, interprofessional internship opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in a long-term care teaching home.

Over seven weeks, successful candidates will actively participate in small group learning focused on aging, clinical issues in gerontology, evaluation techniques and inter-professional competencies. Interns will engage in, and further their understanding of, the practice setting by learning alongside healthcare providers, attending clinical rounds, being paired with a resident and engaging in arts-based and game-based learning.

Interns will also be teamed with a mentor and participate in a program evaluation, quality improvement, or innovation project. This internship will include opportunities to network and job shadow a variety of roles across the continuum of geriatric services at Baycrest.

I invite you to encourage 1-2 undergraduate students with demonstrated strong academic, community and clinical achievement and with an interest in geriatrics, aging or neurosciences to apply. Applications will undergo a panel review.

Students can visit here for more information, and can listen to reflections from the 2015 interns on their internship experience and insights into the field of aging at here
