Please visit the new page to apply.
Residential Healthcare offers home health and hospice services to patients throughout Southern Illinois. The hospice team is offering an internship position to a social work major with an interest in medical social work.

A social work intern will shadow and support our MSWs by visiting patients, attending interdisciplinary meetings, and attending networking events. Interns will work with members of Residential's interdisciplinary team, including the medical director/MD, RN case managers, home health aides, chaplains, and volunteers.
Residential Healthcare's regional office is located in Glen Carbon. Internships are available for Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters.
Individual responsibilities will vary based on experience, coursework completed, and interests of applicant.
Responsibilities can include, but are not limited to, meeting with patients and families face-to-face, phone calls, ride alongs with various interdisciplinary team members, office/clerical support, bereavement support, attending wakes/funeral services, etc.
