Two of our academic programs, cytotechnology and medical technology, include a required 12 month clinical internship in a hospital setting. For more information on these clinical internships please visit our medical technology or cytotechnology pages.

Obtaining practical experience is of great benefit both for enhancing your prospects for acceptance into a graduate program and for gaining greater familiarity with the professional expectations and demands of your chosen field of study.  Many students interested in careers in the health sciences intern at the CVPH Medical Center, Plattsburgh N.Y., which is located adjacent to the campus. Internships are performed for credit during the semester or during break. Learn more about CVPH internships.

A large number of (primarily summer) internship opportunities are available elsewhere in New York or in other states. Check out the listings below:
