The Fehribach Center Internship Program for Students with Physical Disabilities

Location: IN, United States Experience Type: Internship Programs

The Gregory S. Fehribach Center offers eight-week internships each summer. A small number are also offered in the spring and fall. These are paid, full-time internships in fields related to the student’s major, with housing and transportation assistance offered when needed. Interns are matched with programs and departments that align with their academic pursuits, interests and/or career goals. Weekly professional development workshops have included topics such as interviewing skills, disclosure and self-advocacy, leadership skills and opportunities, personal finance, professional etiquette, and strategies for advancement in the workplace.

Interns are placed in either a wide range of departments within Eskenazi Health or with our growing number of partner employers. In each case, the placement directly aligns with that intern’s career goals. Examples of the diverse range of internship areas include:
