Refer a Student to the Aboriginal High School Student Internship Program

Aboriginal High School Student Internships (AHSSI) are designed to provide work experience to students who are from First Nations, Métis or Inuit heritage. Through mentorship by clinical and administrative health services staff students will explore and learn about the many health care career opportunities within the Winnipeg health region and gain an understanding of how to access many supports available to them in their field of interest.

In AHSSI students can:

  • explore careers in health care

  • experience diverse job placements

  • provide service to others

  • gain volunteer experience for resumes

  • learn new computer skills, organizational skills and communication skills

  • earn money!

If you know of a First Nations, Métis or Inuit high school student who may be interested in this unique experience, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to support them by referring them to AHSSI.  

The deadline for applications is January 14, 2009! To apply for AHSSI, students can contact Aboriginal Health Programs- Human Resources by calling 940-8738.
