Try to leave afternoon open if you can so you can go get your security badge. If you have something planned, you can do it later.

Please call your intern colleagues to make sure everybody got this message.

When you get this message, email me at and put your name and the word GOT IT in the subject line. Otherwise I will be calling your house. Please do this so I don’t have to worry and so I can manage my blood pressure. I need a vacation free of worrying. See you all out at the hospital.

Internship Meeting (Mandatory)

There is a mandatory meeting for interns this Wednesday after school. The managers from the three CPMC hospitals will interview you with the intent of getting  to know you and to place you for the summer. You have been selected as an intern, however they need to meet you. So, wear professional attire and be at your best. They are great people – nothing to worry about.

It takes 40 minutes to get there by buss. This means you will have to go as soon as the bell rings. Perhaps I can get you released from school a few minutes early

When: Wednesday May 21st

Time: 3:00pm

Location: Davis Campus in the Gazebo Room

Please confirm by sending me an email with your name and the word Gazebo in the subject box.



GHA Internship Selected Applicants

Please Read Carefully

Hello CPMC Internship Applicants. I want to let you all know that I received great reviews from your interviewers. All the interviewers said you did an awesome job in answering the questions thoughtfully, presenting yourselves professionally and coming across as warm-hearted individuals. They were particularly impressed by how many of you volunteer your time to make this world a better place for others. Volunteerism is a value that most people identify with and hold in high regard. Congratulations!

** It is important to note that CPMC requires their interns to live up to their commitment. This means, you are expected to come on time everyday. There is no skipping or missing a day unless it is an emergency. You and your parents will be expected to sign a contract and to live up to that contract.
