Student Internships

The internship is a key element of PSM programs at Grand Valley State University where students spend ~440 hours in a business, medical, or academic setting working on projects under the supervision of an on-site mentor. During their internship students work on a project(s) chosen with their mentor and are exposed to the professional workplace setting. Internship experience prepares students to excel in a workplace setting and makes them more appealing job candidates.
