Posted On: January 16, 2020

The Summer 2020 internships are open to students who are enrolled in post-secondary healthcare professions programs, including nursing, medicine, social work, pharmacy, food and nutrition, kinesiology, health sciences, gerontology, and some therapeutic recreation specialties.

Over 6 weeks, successful candidates will actively participate in small group learning on aging, clinical issues in gerontology, evaluation techniques, and inter-professional competencies. Interns will grow in their understanding of the practice setting by learning alongside healthcare providers, attending clinical rounds, shadowing a resident, and participating in arts-based and game-based learning.

As said by an Ontario CLRI Intern Alumni “The internship is the best thing I ever did for my career! It showed me the practical side of all my university education and opened many doors.”

Interns will also be teamed up with a mentor to take part in a program evaluation, quality improvement, or innovation project. This internship will include opportunities to network, job shadow, and observe first-hand the role that both individual disciplines, as well as inter-professional collaboration, play across the continuum of geriatric services at Baycrest.

To learn more about the internship, watch a video produced by our interns in collaboration with the Toronto International Film Festival Reel Comfort Program at:

Come experience Baycrest and be part of the next generation of health clinician leaders in gerontology and aging!
