Students will shadow and experience all aspects of healthcare including – hospital, clinic and long term care nursing, laboratory, radiology, outreach, and many other areas. This paid internship starts after Memorial Day. Interns are typically scheduled 3 to 4 days per week based on their availability.

-Post-secondary students who are enrolled in (and not graduating this school year) a Minnesota 2-year or 4-year health care degree-granting educational program; or are a resident of Minnesota enrolled in (but not graduating this school year) an out-of-state two-year or four-year health care degree-granting educational program.

Vaccine Waiting list

We anticipate that we will have limited supply of the COVID-19 Vaccine.  Ortonville Area Health Services will be contacting eligible individuals using birthdates to prioritize appointments, starting with the oldest patients first.  Individuals 65 and older considered at the highest risk for complications from the COVID-19 virus, are being prioritized and contacted first.

If you are a current OAHS patient you DO NOT need to be put on the waiting list, as you will be contacted according to your age. If you are not a patient, but are a resident of Minnesota, please fill out the form below.
