Internship program: Building digital health skills for the future

Project Participants

Status: Ongoing


Through DHCRC’s paid internship program students gain first-hand experience of working in the health sector where they can practically apply the knowledge learned in their university degrees. Internships provide an opportunity for students to build their resumes and networks and graduates are awarded a shareable digital badge from DHCRC to verify their skills and learning outcomes. Several graduates have already secured employment with host partners upon completion of the program.

Industry and government benefit from hosting interns as this emerging talent brings diversity and new ways of thinking into the workplace that can fill skills gaps and fast-track innovation. An added advantage for hosts is the specialist knowledge and experience students bring with them in the form of their academic supervisor and project mentor.

Project Objective
