High school students can discuss an internship for a day with their guidance counselor. Most institutions allow high school students to explore the possibilities of a career in the health and socials services sector by shadowing a professional for a day.
Guidance counselors can contact the human resources departments directly to learn how to organize internships for their students.
University, CEGEP or DEP students can use the resources of Place aux jeunes en région which seeks to facilitate internships out of urban areas. For more information: description and website (partly translated to English).
The McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project
The McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project contributes to Quebec’s initiatives to ensuring English-speaking Quebecers have access to the full range of health and social services in their own language through measures designed to build and maintain a sufficient complement of health and social services personnel capable of providing services in English. The project is an additional tool to support the implementation and enhancement of regional programs of access to health and social services in English as provided for in the Act respecting health and social services.
The objectives are to ensure English-speaking people receive effective communication in their language from the health and social services professionals serving their needs and to increase the number of English-speaking professionals working in the health and social services system.
4 Korners is collaborating with McGill University to bring English-speaking health and social services professionals to the Laurentian Region. You can view and download our McGill University Retention Project pamphlet or email us at email@example.com for more information.
