Venture Healthcare 2019


Interested in healthcare? Venture Healthcare is an immersive health internship for enthusiastic and inspired undergraduate students with preference for students from Indigenous backgrounds or who demonstrate financial need. Students from any undergraduate background are eligible so long as they express interest in working in healthcare (aspiring doctors, clinical social workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, etc), and are not already enrolled in a recognized health sciences program.

Interning with Venture Healthcare provides the opportunity to experience and observe many different aspects of healthcare. The internship is comprised of shadowing rotations, community health initiatives, as well as lectures and seminars focused on contemporary healthcare issues.

Venture Healthcare's 2019 internship will take place for two weeks starting August 12-23, 2019 (on weekdays only, from 8AM-4PM). Applications will open on April 22, 2019 and will close May 21, 2019 at 12 PM.
