AMCNO Members Host Community Professionals for the Annual Mini-Internship Program

Cleveland-area professionals had the unique opportunity to shadow physician members during the Academy of Medicine of Cleveland & Northern Ohio’s (AMCNO) annual Mini-Internship program held Oct. 17-19, 2016.

This year’s program welcomed three community leaders (or “interns”): Lydia Coutré, Health Care and Nonprofits Reporter for Crain’s Cleveland Business; Martha Hostetter, Founder of Pear Tree Communications; and Dave Valent, Associate Counsel at Cleveland Clinic. 

The program began with an Orientation Dinner, led by Dr. William Seitz, where the interns were introduced to the physicians participating in the event as well as the physicians they would be shadowing over the following two days.

The purpose of the event is to give these professionals a broad sense of the complexities involved with health care and the practice of medicine. During the program, the interns were exposed to several different aspects of medical care—from surgery to patient visits.

All of the participants then reconvened at the AMCNO offices on the final day for a Debrief Dinner that allowed them to share their experiences with the program.

If you would be interested in participating in next year’s Mini-Internship program, contact the AMCNO offices at (216) 520-1000. To learn more about the program, click here.
