2017 CCMS MiniMED Internship

Our Junior Mini Internship Program is just one of the ways we strive to enhance students desire to pursue a career in medicine and to keep our best and brightest in Nevada.


October 9th - 19th, 2017

Our Junior Mini Internship Program is just one of the ways we strive to enhance students desire to pursue a career in medicine and to keep our best and brightest here in Nevada! This experience is more than just an opportunity to shadow a doctor; this program affords the student a chance to interact with a doctor and the care team in the physical, intellectual and emotional environment the student plans to pursue. We go all out to connect students with doctors in areas of specialties they seek to follow and introduce them to specialties they may not have considered. Our goal is to build a bridge from High School to Medical School. CCMS has coordinated with the Clark County School District to work directly with your school administration in the selection process. Below is how you apply.
