“This internship affected my future career goals in many ways. I’ve had meetings and spoken with physicians and HR’s via Microsoft teams and it’s done nothing but make me even more excited to pursue the career I hope to have in the future as a gynecologist.”

-Ashley Adam, MYEP Intern, Rocky River High School (and her leader, Kim Cornellier, Manager, Physician Connection Line)


Summer Internships (Non-Clinical) 

The Summer Employment/Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to invest in the workforce of tomorrow and we appreciate your thoughtful consideration in that investment.

Applications for the 2022 Atrium Health Summer Internship Program will be available February 2022 on the Atrium Health Careers site. Search for Student Intern/Summer.

The Summer Internship Program is intended to bring both college interns (undergraduate and graduate level) and high school students from the Mayor's Youth Employment Program (MYEP) to Atrium Health. Students must apply for MYEP through their school.

  • Interns will be selected by Workforce Development and hiring leaders.
  • Internships last approximately 10-12 weeks for non-clinical, full-time and part-time, paid opportunities. Internships will be expensed to the hiring department or Workforce Development.

Internships include:

  • Formalized structure, including SMART goals to be achieved by the end of the internship
  • Bi-weekly report of training and projects, to be completed by the intern

MYEP Students will be expected to attend Friday experiences, facilitated by Career Development, to gain further understanding of the System and soft skills training.

Shadowing Observation

Due to the pandemic, all shadowing and observation experiences have been suspended.

There is no immediate plan to re-open shadowing experiences for students at any level and these experiences remain at a very low system priority during our pandemic response. At this time, we are concentrating on providing experiences to those students that are in pursuit of academic credit at the collegiate level.
