MaryAnn Black Virtual Summer Internship Program

The Duke University Health System (DUHS) has a long history of providing educational opportunities for Durham high school students. This continues with the MaryAnn Black Virtual Summer Internship Program. Previously called the DUHS Summer Internship Program, this program was recently renamed to honor MaryAnn Black and her commitment to the program and to Durham. 

DUHS is collaborating with Made in Durham and Durham Youth/Work for an education-to-career virtual internship program for students attending high schools in Durham. This paid internship experience will help prepare students to meet the workforce needs of our community. 

This year’s program will be completely virtual and will highlight dozens of healthcare careers and healthcare supportive careers. The internship will begin June 7 and end June 30, 2021. The first week will be devoted to structured training and orientation. The remaining weeks will give the student an overview of the many career opportunities that make up the fabric of Duke Health.

If you are a Durham high school student between the ages of 15 and 18 and are interested in being considered for this summer internship please go to the Durham YouthWork website and apply.

The application process is closed for Summer 2021.
Look for Summer 2022 applications opening in February of 2022.
