As a volunteer in the Care Extender Internship Program, you are placed behind-the-scenes of the Ronald Reagan Medical Center and/or the Santa Monica Hospital, in which you have the opportunity to shadow doctors, nurses, and care partners, as well as observe medical procedures ranging from general care taking to IV line management to even live births or surgeries! As a Care Extender, you have the choice of working in various departments and floors across the hospital, such as Oncology, the ER, Labor & Delivery, Pediatrics, and much more. The Care Extender Program provides opportunities for volunteers to experience health care from a clinical perspective through patient contact and volunteer involvement. Care Extenders are trained to assist Medical Center staff, whom, in turn, are able to share their personal experiences with their volunteers. Time spent in the program proves invaluable because it provides each Care Extender with "in-the-trenches" experience in a real hospital setting. Care Extenders are respected as professional members of a patient care team. As a result, they gain an insiders' understanding of the operations of the hospital- an experience that helps them determine their specific course for future studies. If you're interested, please visit for more information and to sign-up for the next upcoming rotation. Below are the steps to becoming a Care Extender:

-To qualify, you must be 18 years or older, currently attend college or already have a degree.

-Sign up for an orientation date September 30th, October 2nd, October 3rd, and October 4th located on our website and complete an in-person application immediately after.

-If selected, attend an interview session.

-Upon acceptance into the program (requires one year commitment), you must attend a mandatory training session.  You will also need to get CPR certified by the American Heart Association, complete a 2-step TB test, and have proof of MMR vaccination and Varicella vaccination (or proof of history of chicken pox).

CCI Program Overview


The Community College Internship (CCI) program seeks to encourage community college students to enter technical careers relevant to the DOE mission by providing technical training experiences at the DOE laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 15 participating DOE laboratories. They work on technologies or instrumentation projects or major research facilities supporting DOE’s mission, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers.

The CCI program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories.

Applications for the CCI program are solicited annually for the Summer Term, and beginning in the 2016 Spring Term, for a pilot semester program. Internship appointments are 10 weeks in duration for the Summer Term (May through August), or 16 weeks in duration for the Spring Term (January through May). Each DOE laboratory offers different technical internship opportunities; not all DOE laboratories participate in the CCI program; and not all DOE laboratories/facilities offer internships during the Fall and Spring Terms.

The DOE Scholars Program introduces students or recent college graduates to DOE's mission and operations. As a participant in the DOE Scholars Program, you will earn a competitive edge by familiarizing yourself with DOE functions while showcasing your education, talent and skills.



The JPL Education Office manages numerous internship opportunities in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Find the program that's right for you, click on the logo above!
