Experience Springfield Clinic

Student ProgramsSpringfield Clinic is committed to supporting an educated and qualified community workforce. To reflect this commitment, we provide work experience, training, and education to students in three levels of temporary, unpaid work experience through job shadowing, clinical training, or non-clinical internships to help meet educational requirements set by the school. This work experience can be used as an educational, networking, and recruiting opportunity for both the student and Springfield Clinic.

Job Shadowing shall mean a work experience where students learn about a job by walking through the day as a shadow to a competent worker. The work experience is a temporary, unpaid exposure to the workplace in an occupational area of interest to the student. This can include all departments within SC. For Example: Nurse Practitioner or Physician’s Assistant applying to school requiring a job shadow prior to acceptance to the school.

Clinical Training shall mean the onsite education of healthcare personnel, provided by a licensed provider, which will include direct observation and/or physical contact with patients and/or patient specimens. This can include, but is not limited to, Residents, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, Athletic Training, RN’s, LPN’s, CRNA’s, CNA’s, or MA’s.

Non-Clinical Internship shall mean a temporary, unpaid opportunity for students to gain work experience through on the job training, education, and hands-on experience in any non-clinical department with the Clinic. i.e. Accounting, Privacy, IT, HIM, Human Resources, etc.
