Students are the primary benefactors of the Orlando Health Service Line Marketing Internship Program. Although the internship includes actual operation of Orlando Health facilities, the program is similar to training that would be given in an educational environment. This is to the direct benefit of students. The intern does not displace regular Orlando Health employees, but works under close supervision of our staff. Orlando Health derives no immediate advantage from the activities of the intern, and on occasion, its operations may actually be impeded. The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship. The employer and the intern understand that the intern is not entitled to wages for the time spent in the internship.
