You might meet one of the Project SEARCH interns while at the Luther Campus in Eau Claire. You'll recognize them by their bright blue polo shirts and big smiles.
Mayo Clinic Health System is a proud supporter of Project SEARCH, where students are provided with real-life work experience combined with training in employment and independent living skills, helping those with significant disabilities make successful transitions from school to productive adult life. Each school year, a handful of students receive their education at Mayo Clinic Health System.
In September 2016, Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire welcomed its first Project SEARCH class. These students spend time in a classroom here, but also are introduced to many departments in the organization. Students have real-life experience working in a health care organization and learn many employment skills. Each student is matched with a position/department that fits with his or her skills and interests.
Not only do the students receive hands-on training, but the organization receives the benefit of interns assisting in projects and tasks.
