MERRILLVILLE | The idea of pursuing an internship probably doesn’t cross most high school student’s minds, but it’s a great way to sample potential careers or college majors. Such was the case for Adam Tapper, Jasmin McGee, Megan Austin and Shawnay Lardydell, all seniors at Merrillville High School.

Students for the Methodist Hospitals internship program were pre-selected by Sharon Row, teacher and facilitator of the Merrillville High School Internship, based on their academic standing and desire to pursue a college degree in health care.

Methodist Hospitals Community Outreach Manager LaTanya Woodson developed a rotation schedule that would allow students the opportunity to interact with physicians, nurses, clinical and non-clinical staff at both hospital campuses, Gary and Merrillville.

The rotation included switchboard, Surgery Services, Radiology Services, Food Services, Environmental Services, Social Services, and meetings with physicians. Interns even participated in a mock trauma presentation conducted by Trauma Surgeon Ruben Rutland. The quartet also had the opportunity to meet with Executive Team members including Dr. Michael Davenport, president and interim CEO at Methodist Hospitals.
