Most of our students at Midwestern Career College complete an externship prior to graduation — an opportunity for unique training in a real-life patient-care setting, where you’ll get hands-on experience in your field of study.

Here’s how an externship will help you as you build your education and your career:

  • You’ll put into practice what we’ve been teaching you in the classroom.
  • You’ll gain real-world experience from top hospitals and clinics in Chicagoland.
  • You’ll build your resume and be more attractive to employers.
  • You’ll gain confidence.
  • You’ll meet new people.
  • You’ll establish long-lasting connections and grow your professional network.
  • You can explore your curiosities and interests in your field of study.
  • You’ll have exciting experiences as you learn on the job.
  • You don’t have to find your externship site. We will find it for you!
  • You’ll be better prepared for national certification exams!
