Summer Intern Program

I know this might come as shocking news for many of you, but kids do not grow up wanting to be hospital administrators. If one were to poll a group of kindergartners, the five year olds would respond with professions such as doctor, nurse, maybe even an occasional accountant. Hospital administrator… not so much.

In 2010 administration decided to expand our organizations intern program. We hoped that putting our leaders in a position of mentor and teacher would help them to” sharpen the saw”. Based on the quality of young adults that have spent some time at KSB this summer, and the positive feedback we have received from the professionals they spent time with, we made a great decision.

Hopefully these students will take away some valuable life lessons and consider a career in healthcare. Congratulations and best wishes in your future endeavors!

    Hi Dave,

    I can identify with your thought process here. I didn't know administrative health care careers existed when I was a young person. I fell into it by "chance" as a file clerk in a hospital and loved the environment immediately. Then, when the department I was working in had an intern, she invited me to go to school with her and meet the Health Sciences Department staff and tour. I did and enrolled in the Health Information Managment program. You have done a good thing by opening up our intern program. Although very resource intensive for the directors, it's very necessary for our future growth and much needed talent in our fields. They will never know if we don't show them. Thanks for your forward thinking to make KSB the best for all of us.
