Internship Positions and Structure

- Administrative (Medical Receptionist) — Year round
Students are placed within Emerson Practice Associates and integrated with members of the team. Internships can be customized around school requirements and made flexible with school credits.
Medical assistant interns prepare patients and assist providers during exams. They also update medical records and schedule appointments.
Administrative interns are immersed in the “frontlines” where they interact with patients and schedule appointments. They maintain functions of the revenue cycle by confirming insurance eligibility and collecting payments. Administrative interns acquire fundamental skills of communication, time management, organization, and multi-tasking as they navigate into their healthcare career.
