If you are currently enrolled
in an accredited health career training program, a rotation at Fenway Health
can provide you with valuable experience and hands-on training. Primary care
providers at Fenway who serve as clinical educators have a wide range of
interests including: HIV care, LGBT health, women’s health, and general primary
care. Our medical staff has admitting privileges at Beth Israel Deaconess
Medical Center, a Harvard Medical School affiliated teaching hospital.
Both BIDMC and Harvard Medical School are recognized as world-class training
and research institutions.
Fenway Health offers a limited
number of medical internships for residents and eligible students training to
become physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
Depending on your academic program, rotations typically last between 1-3 weeks.
All students and medical residents are responsible for obtaining approval and
credit through their individual academic program. To inquire about an
internship opportunity, please email your CV/resume and cover letter to the
Medical Education Coordinator, Christina Thuerwachter, at email@example.com. Internship requests should be made at least 3 months in
advance of requested clinical placement dates.
Behavioral Health Internships
For the past 20 years, Fenway's Behavioral Health Department has trained graduate and post-doctoral students in the field of mental health and addiction services. Most students are placed at Fenway for the academic year, but occasionally we accept students for a summer block placement.
We utilize an interdisciplinary approach with our staff, which is comprised of social workers, mental health & HIV counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, victim advocates, substance abuse case managers/counselors, health promotion educators, and acupuncturists. Our theoretical orientation is predominantly psychodynamic; however, with active substance abuse and acute PTSD clients the emphasis may be on cognitive behavioral and psychoeducational approaches.
