Internshipa The primary goal of the internship program is to train graduate level student interns to become competent clinicians in the field of cancer care. This includes developing and augmenting existing skills in diagnostic interviewing, treatment planning, and case management. The program also assists student interns to function as professionals in a clinical or community setting. Interns learn how to interact with other professionals as part of an interdisciplinary team and how to interface with medical and community agencies. The interns are exposed to general professional issues including cultural diversity and ethical considerations that affect Latinos living with cancer.
