CPMC Internship List (2016)

Hello CPMC Internship Applicants,

The hospital provided me with a list of this Year’s Summer interns (2016). They said they were very very impressed by all of the applicants and if they had more positions available, they would have selected all of you.

If you were not selected, please know that Andy and I are committed to working with you on trying to finding an internship somewhere in the city. Please consider yourself an alternate in case someone on this list cannot participate.

If you are on this list and you cannot participate, let me know immediately so I can work with the hospital on selecting an alternate. It is the hospital’s choice on selecting the alternate.

Lastly, I am proud of all of the applicants for many reasons. Great work to all of you. I will be counting on the interns to do a variety of activities and to provide support next school year.

Stay tuned for our first internship meeting.

If you  are an intern, and you have a free period next school year I expect your support.


Mr. McDowell

I need to know by Monday if you are committed to this position. McDowellR@sfusd.edu

Hello Wonderful Health Academy Student,
This is a unique experience and every student that has attended in the past has said very good things about it – some are even now studying to be dentists. It is also the kind of experience you can add to your resume or talk about in your “personal statement letter” for college. Please email me if you are interested in attending. They have agreed to hold 5 spots for health academy students. I will randomly select 5 students. If you tell me you want to go and you are selected, please go.. I don’t want one spot unused. That would not be fair to your colleagues.
Also, you don’t have to want to be a dentist to enjoy this. It’s a great way to spent the day.

If you want to go, email me now at mcdowellr@sfusd.edu and put the words “Dental Camp” in the subject line of the email. I would like to select students today so do this right away if you are interested.

**** Do not register if you want to go!!!!!!!!! I have 5 spots held and registration is closed. Let me know as per instructions above..!!!!!
