When deployed properly, internships are a win-win-win proposition: a great real-world learning opportunity for students, a growth and mentorship opportunity for staff, and both a talent pipeline and good PR for your organization.  But all too often, companies and institutions don’t invest enough to ensure an effective and enjoyable internship program.  What are the factors that spell success for internships?

In this presentation, representatives from the University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) will discuss their approach to integrating student learning opportunities into their ongoing operations and special projects.  Via a case study approach, attendees will learn about the pros and cons of investing in a true internship program and be given some general tools and processes to make such a project a success.

  Lunch will be provided by the event sponsor
