The Co-op job placement is an educational program offered through the local high schools; it gives students the opportunity to work part-time in one of our three clinics.

Students will also have the opportunity to observe many of the activities in the hospital that they are not yet trained to participate in, giving them a sense of what their future career may be like.

We will expect a resume with a cover letter and an interview with the student before accepting the co-op placement.
