Active Learning Opportunities

The variety of health careers continues to grow, and you may struggle to know which path to pursue. Internships allow you to experience a professional role firsthand and to build a network with those already at work in the field. At the same time, you are building a portfolio that demonstrates your strengths and readiness to take the next step. Quincy students have interned in the following hospitals:
  • St. Elizabeth's Hospital (Belleville, Ill.)
  • St. John's Hospital (Springfield, Ill.)
  • St. John's Mercy Medical Center (St. Louis, Mo.)
  • OSF St. Francis Medical Center (Peoria, Ill.)
In addition to internships, you will have a multitude of opportunities in your classes to participate in hands-on learning. Few schools of our size offer a cadaver lab for experiential learning. At larger schools, your opportunities for guided investigation at this level are rare. Quincy alumni report time and again that the combination of undergraduate cadaver lab and individualized instruction puts them ahead of the game in medical school.
