Applying for the Health Care Ethics Internship Program
The application period for the 2015-2016 program is now open!
The Health Care Ethics Internship program, sponsored by the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, in partnership with local hospitals and other health care facilities, is open to all Santa Clara University current sophomores and juniors, and prospective and current graduate students who are interested in health care ethics. Graduate students should contact the Program Administrator for application instructions. Since there are a limited number of placements available, students will be selected based on qualifications and interviews.
A firm commitment of one academic year is required. This includes five hours a week of clinical rotations, plus biweekly reflection sessions on Tuesdays from 5:40-7:20 p.m. The internship is a five-credit upper-division pass/no pass course for which students register in the spring quarter. Students who are accepted into the program are expected to have completed an SCU ethics course by the beginning of Fall quarter 2015.
