CPMC Internship Program

Dear Galileo Health Academy/CPMC Internship Applicants,

I am pleased to inform you that the following students have been selected to participate in the Galileo Health Academy(GHA)/CPMC Internship Program. All applicants were considered and all applicants did a wonderful job. A few students were not selected because of a summer schedule conflict. If your name is not on the list I will be happy to help you explore other options.

As an intern in the GHA/CPMC Summer Internship program you will be expected to:

– Abide by the schedule (Dates) of the internship

– Make the GHA/CPMC Internship daily schedule (the hours you are scheduled to be at the hospital) your top priority

– Abide by and follow all CPMC rules of conduct

– Work to maintain and develop a positive productive GHA community during your senior year. For example, if you have a free T.A. period you should give priority to the GHA – we sure can use your help and you can put it on a resume.

– Represent your name and the GHA to the best of your ability.

Hormone Quiz 2 and Homework

  1. Your next quiz will be very difficult. It will be on the female reproductive system. Specifically it will be on the follicular cycle, the hormones of the luteal phase, the uterine cycle and hormones and body temperature (pgs. 597-600). You will be able to use reading notes, a diagram you make of the regulation of ovarian activity (pgs. 598) and a diagram you make of the hormonal regulation of the female reproductive cycle.
  2. Today you are to quietly take reading notes on pgs. 597 – 600 and on a separate piece of paper create the two above mentioned diagrams. Feel free to use colored pencils


I would like you to create two resumes. One resume that is current. Be sure to include your CCSF course work either completed or in progress. Second, I would like you to create a second futuristic resume that reflects what you would have accomplished after finishing up your Galileo Health Academy experience.

You can include the following.

1. Summer Internship Experience at CPMC.

2. Your trip to Sacramento advocating for health legislation for the American Heart Association.

3. Your CCSF Med Term and EMT course.

4. The blood drive you will conduct with the Blood Bank of the Pacific your senior year.

5. Remember, you would also have graduated from Galileo so put that.

6. Any Volunteer experience or extra curricular program or opportunity you participated in.

Printed copies will be due Monday morning.

The following web site is a resource you can use to create a proper resume.
