Student Placements & Internships

If you’re a health science or medical student, a clinical placement or internship, Essentia Health can help you. To be eligible for a clinical placement or internship at Essentia, you must be a student enrolled at an accredited academic program that requires the placement or internship experience.

Clinical Placement Process

Ask your program’s placement coordinator to contact Christina Marshall, health science and medical education specialist, to explore opportunities that may be right for you.

All clinical placements at Essentia Health are coordinated through our health science and medical education office. Do not directly contact our physicians or staff to request a placement or internship.

PT & OT Observation Hours

If you need observation hours for a physical therapy (PT) or occupational therapy (OT) program, fill out and submit a volunteer application.

Job Shadows

Essentia doesn’t offer job shadow opportunities. If you’re looking for ways to explore health careers and demonstrate your interest to schools, consider volunteering.
