Interns will be challenged to continuously learn and grow as they assume more responsibility and autonomy at Arnold Palmer Medical Center. Interns receive weekly individual and group supervision as well as continuing education opportunities. In addition to their assigned areas, interns have the opportunity to precept with other department clinicians, allowing them to expand the scope of their experience, deepen their clinical skills, and interact with a multidisciplinary team of professionals.
Interns are valued members of the department. After their time with Orlando Health, they will have gained invaluable skills and a better understanding of the complexities and challenges of a health care clinical social worker.
