Mayers Selects 3 Summer Interns for Summer 2016
Three graduating seniors from local high schools have been accepted to work as interns for Mayers Memorial Hospital District this summer. The three students are: Brianna Carmenita from Fall River High School; Cameron Pearson from Burney High School; and Alexia Miller from Big Valley High School.
The internships are part of a new program established by MMHD to teach local students the skills, knowledge, and insight necessary for careers at Mayers Memorial Hospital District and in the healthcare field.
Carmenita will be working in non-clinical areas including Administration, Finance, Patient Access and Human Resources. She will be attending Shasta College and majoring in accounting. She has been involved in Student Government and the Interact Club at Fall River High School. She hopes to pursue a career in finance.
Pearson will focus on ancillary services. He will be attending Shasta College and wishes to pursue a career in Imaging Science. He has been very active in community services, high school musical programs and the Leos Club.
Miller has chosen nursing for her area of focus. She will attend Butte College and major in nursing. She has been involved in Student Government and FFA while at Big Valley High School.
Graduating seniors submitted applications designating their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of intern departments. Their applications included a brief statement explaining their interest, college and career goals and why they would like to be a part of MMHD’s intern program. Applications were reviewed by the TEAM MAYERS committee and a selection was made from each local high school.
The interns will work 20 hours per week for an 8 week time between June 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016. Internships are in both clinical and non-clinical departments. In addition, the intern will contribute a total of 10 volunteer hours through the Mayers Intermountain Healthcare Foundation.
