Nineteen UNT Health Science Center MHA students have found their 2017 summer internships, thanks to a “speed interview” event on campus with potential healthcare employers.

In quick rotations, students were able to meet with representatives from 11 local healthcare organizations to showcase their talents, interests and resumes.

Participating organizations included JPS Health Network, Children’s Health Dallas, Children’s Health Plano, UNTHSC, Lake Granbury Medical Center, Kane Hall Berry Neurology, North Central Surgical Center Hospital, Southwest Sports and Spine Center, Texas Health Resources, Weatherford Regional Medical Center and Wise Regional Health System.

“The MHA speed interview event is a great way to connect students with internship opportunities,” said Martin Ostensen, MHA Program Director. “All of the students who interviewed in the timed sessions presented well and impressed the visiting organizations with their polish and professionalism.”

Students will be working on a variety of projects and healthcare assignments this summer. One such project is the design and implementation of an emergency operations plan to meet new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) guidelines. Another project will involve development of a model and criteria for patient room improvements.
