Students take internships for experience in medical field
By Chase Cuteralli
Three Marysville High School (MHS) students had the opportunity to intern at Memorial Hospital, twice a week, in the past year.
Savannah Sparks, Kassidi Jones and Ethan Smegal are three MHS students who worked along with doctors, nurses and other staff members. They also spent an hour of their school days gaining real-world experience in the field of medicine. These students were also joined by a select group of students from the Early College High School.
“They take us into the different departments,” Sparks said. “We’ve gone to City Gate, Wound Center and other branches.”
Each student said they have their own favorite part about the experience.
“I really liked City Gate,” Smegal said. “I just really like sports and being behind someone who actually deals with recovery and helps the athlete get back on the field is something I really enjoy.”
Both Sparks and Jones expressed their interest for the infants and mothers they were able to meet.
While the internship helps guide these students into careers that interest them, much of the learning comes from the emotions in a hospital.
“When we go into each of the (different) departments, they tell us their ‘low,’” Sparks said. “But that’s what comes with the medical field, so it prepared us.”
This was the first school year for this program, and will continue in the future.
“I guess I didn’t realize all the different jobs needed to run a hospital,” Sparks said. “We’re learning about all of the people that help make medicine possible.”
They said they’re glad they participated, and appreciate the opportunity.

For college credit, she has taken computer applications, advanced computer applications, marketing, principles of business, accounting and advanced accounting.
“My favorite part about going on the trip was going in and talking to all the different companies and what they do with their business,” Itnyre said. “The biggest part I took away was how technology and innovation are evolving in today’s world.”
After her senior year, she will continue learning about business and technology, and will attend Bowling Green State University’s College of Business next fall.
