All institute training opportunities require the submission of an internship posting online, along with the institute's Appointment Requisition & Assignment Description, at https://lundquist.org/education/internship-opportunity.
The Appointment Requisition & Assignment Description is required for all students/interns and similar volunteers, detailing whether the assignment will be involved with LA County DHS facilities, patients, or IT systems; have exposure to hazardous agents; or involve working with animals.
Please note that additional lead time will be required to obtain a clearance to start an assignment if these factors are involved in the assignment. Such lead time may take up to several weeks to obtain clearance to start an assignment.
All trainees that are admitted to the institute, whether under a general internship, an institute program (e.g., Summer Fellows Program, PhD Program), or other training opportunity, are registered as students based on an academic year divided into four academic quarters.
Once onboarded, students must register for every quarter they matriculate at the institute. They will be notified by the Office of Education to do so, but you or the direct supervisor of an intern may be contacted if the student does not register nor indicate that they completed their training.
