Although Huntsville Hospital does not have established internships, occasionally a limited number of unpaid internships in specific fields of study can be provided for students. These internships are for students attending area colleges and universities that have an Educational Affiliation Agreement with Huntsville Hospital. Although Huntsville Hospital provides a broad number of clinical and preceptorship opportunities for many local nursing schools, the organization does not provide internships for nurses. Students should contact Huntsville Hospital’s Corporate University two semesters prior to the semester they wish to request an internship.
