    Program Description: 
    This program will provide interns with information to make an accurate decision about a future health care career. Interns will gain academic, personal, communication and technical skills. The program will remain flexible to meet the individual needs of those interns who apply for acceptance. In order to accommodate this, transportation to Excela Health Latrobe Area Hospital and other clinical sites must be provided by the intern. This feature will allow interns the flexibility they need regarding scheduling and hospital activities at the end of the day. Interns must have at least one period open at the end of the day. The interns will spend 120 hours or more in the classroom instruction and clinical rotations. Interns must have a solid preparation in Science, Math, and English.
