In an effort to remain compliant with the Fair Labor Standards Act, host departments will need to establish learning outcomes. What will the intern be able to do by the end of their internship? What is it that the intern will have an opportunity to learn, practice, develop, etc. This should be expressed as acquisition of new knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes.
- Department submits the request form
- Intern position is announced
- Department selects an intern
- Clearance is initiated
For additional information and guidance, please visit: Internship Process.
Once you’ve selected a student intern, the student will be routed to Prisma Health Student Affairs for clearance. Clearance requirements include a background check, immunization check, and Learning Hub assignments. Students will need to successfully complete the clearance requirements prior to starting their internship. For an overview of the clearance process, please visit the Prisma Student Affairs New Student site.
We ask that you do not connect your selected intern to the New Student site. We will do so upon creating the students clearance profile.
Prisma ID Badge
The Badge Office will prepare the student’s photo ID badge 24-48 hours after the student has successfully completed the clearance process. Students will receive an automated email with hours and directions to the Badge Office.
IT Related Request
Unfortunately, Prisma Student Affairs does not have the necessary privileges to request user ID’s/access request on behalf of another department. Each Department Manager or their designee will need to submit requests through IS Service-Now.
For departments hosting in the Upstate, host will want to visit:
- Prisma Intranet Home > Plexus > ITS Support > Service Center > Request Something > Browse By Categories > Business Application Services > Application Access
Common request include User ID’s, Prisma Email, RedCaps, and Epic View Only.
Departments offering a stipend will need to collect a W-9 prior to releasing the stipend. Students and departments are encouraged to submit the W-9 at the start of the internship in an effort to expedite the release of the stipend later on.
Departments will also need to submit the Intern Stipend Form and a GHS Check Request Form each time they wish to release a stipend to the intern.
Please scanned and email the documents below to firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Prisma Health Check Request Form: Form #a23878 may be requested from the Copy Center.
Offering Academic Credit
Departments may develop internship opportunities that are or can be offered for credit. An internship that is offered “for credit” does not preclude students from applying to the internship opportunity for “no credit.” In order for the student to obtain credit, Prisma Health must have an established agreement with the students’ college or university. To determine if we have an existing agreement or can establish an agreement, please email Bradley.Hobbs@PrismaHealth.org.
