The Health Services Authority’s (HSA) Summer Internship Programme is currently accepting student applicants after a one-year hiatus due to the novel coronavirus.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for healthcare professionals has been highlighted globally. In Cayman, the Health Services Authority is keen to identify young Caymanian talent from as early as the junior high school level and support their professional development.
“As the HSA executes its strategic plan and expands our services over the next few years, we will be recruiting talent for a number of new clinical and non-clinical roles”, said HSA Chief Human Resources Officer Samantha Bennett. “Our Summer Internship programme is a tool we use to identify and train young Caymanians so that they can return to join Team HSA upon completion of their studies. The HSA strives to be an employer of choice and our interns can look forward to being given engaging, meaningful tasks and receiving mentorship from our team of world-class professionals”.

Internships will commence on June 1st, 2021, and end on September 17th, 2021 with i placement opportunities varying for an estimated 4 – 8 weeks.
