Health Career Connection
Consider the three possibilities of helping to ensure the educational experience continues on for students:
#1 Host an HCC intern at your workplace
HCC Alumni who are in the workplace - those in mid to senior level positions- should consider being a preceptor or for those in entry level positions, you can encourage your employer to be a host organization.
#2 Contribute towards creating HCC internship opportunities in underserved communities
The HCC Alumni Giving Initiative goal is to establish 10 new host organizations in our underserved communities within the seven HCC regions. Often times, these host organizations are at the heart of the communities in need with limited resources and require assistance with covering the intern stipend.
Every dollar will ensure an opportunity for an HCC intern to make a difference in these communities and have a valuable educational experience.
HCC Alumni will help identify 10 HCC Alumni Giving Initiative host organizations so help us reach our goal and click here to donate today. Please indicate "Alumni Giving Campaign" in memo/special instructions box.
#3 Reach out to your network of health professionals, including your HCC preceptor, and encourage them to be a host organization
A recent survey indicated that 96% of HCC Preceptors would highly recommend HCC to colleagues. This finding inspired our new HCC Referral Program which will increase opportunities for student interns and demonstrates our appreciation for your continued support.
Each year HCC turns away hundreds of qualified, deserving students. We could place 2 to 3 times as many interns if we simply had more paid internship placements. Given that paid internship placements are hard to come by in this economic climate, a strong recommendation from a trusted colleague-one who can attest to the value and impact of the HCC experience- can make all the difference to a potential preceptor and host organization.
