Fulfill Patient Care Hours
When a course of study as a medical or nursing student requires a certain number of on-the-job hours, finding meaningful work opportunities can sometimes be challenging.
Some healthcare facilities lack the capacity or level of supervision needed for such experiential programs, while others are so focused on serving clients they haven’t had time to formalize such opportunities.
That’s where ACR Homes and its paid internships — in programs of study including nursing, physician’s assistant training and pre-med — can be invaluable. As our interns gain meaningful hands-on experience working with people with disabilities, they can also accrue the working hours necessary to fulfill their current medical training program or their application for the next part of their training. Not only can they benefit from mentorships, seminars and self-initiated research projects that are customized to their interests, but they'll also be compensated financially for their hard work. That kind of win-win scenario can be a rare find in today’s post-secondary environment.
