AdventHealth develops exclusive training | Adventist News Network
AdventHealth and Andrews University’s School of Architecture and Interior Design (SAID) have introduced a significant new annual internship that will be available to one SAID student annually who has completed their fourth year in the program. The intern selected each year will gain broad experience across a range of key disciplines in the fields of management, architecture, urban design and interior design.
The first internship will be given during the 2023-24 academic year, with the internship taking place from May 13 to August 2, 2024. This unique experience will provide the selected student with a highly beneficial rotation during the summer providing the opportunity to work with:
- AdventHealth Design and Construction Office (adventhealth.com)
- Brasfield & Gorrie, one of America’s largest general contractors (brasfieldgorrie.com)
- HuntonBrady Architects, a renowned architectural firm with over 50 American Institute of Design awards (huntonbrady.com)
The selection committee will interview finalists for the internship in January, with the final selection to be made by the end of January. One of the basic requirements for applicants is a GPA of 3.2 or higher. Interns will be paid $17.00 per hour for 12 weeks, with travel and housing expenses covered, in addition to receiving a scholarship from the College of Architecture and Interior Design.
“We are thankful that a world-class healthcare organization like AdventHealth has demonstrated the quality of the SAID program and the high-achieving students who study here by designing a vital internship that will be available exclusively to SAID students each summer,” says Lionel Johnson, SAID President. Not only is there tremendous experience, but they will also get the opportunity to build relationships with some of the best professionals in our industry.
