We have one of the largest internship departments in Houston. We appreciate our interns who are committed to our vision of bringing compassionate, warm, and exceptional care to our patients within our community.
We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities, including:
- High School students needing hours for HOSA
- Medical Assistant students
- Nurse Practitioner students
The minimum internship time commitment is two 10-hour shifts per week; however, certain programs have more specific commitment requirements. Being consistent matters more than how many hours you intern. Because we must coordinate many intern’s schedules, we must be able to depend on your attendance. Also, please understand that interns service does not lead to paid employment at Optimal Family Care. We happily provide a letter of recommendation for interns who have given at least 150 hours of satisfactory service.
If you are interested in our internship program, please see the instructions below to download and return an application form and questionnaire or call us at 1-832-783-8027 to receive forms by mail. All interns must have medical clearance, provide personal references, undergo an interview, background check, orientation, and any necessary specialized training.
All interns including adults and high school students are required to complete the Medical Clearance Forms. These forms will be provided after receipt of your internship application.
Accepted formats for submission include PDF and Microsoft Word Documents (as attachments). If you mail your application, it should be printed single-sided.
