Work hours vary with requirements and activity of the unit to which the intern is assigned. The intern's hours will be similar to those of the preceptor to whom she/he is assigned. Due to the professional nature of the internship, extra time will be required to complete assignments and projects. Interns can expect to work a 40 hour week, plus additional time for projects, presentations and assignments to enhance the learning experience and meet the internship competencies.
In the supervised practice setting, the Intern works under the guidance of preceptors in assigned rotations. All rotations require strong interpersonal skills, competence in pre-requisite background knowledge, good organizational and time management skills. The Intern must be able to meet deadlines and work within a defined timeframe, prioritize tasks/responsibilities, and concentrate for extended periods of time on detailed materials.
