We are excited to announce the sixth annual student internship program for the summer of 2018. This program supports teams in health care organizations to hire a fully-funded intern to advance their projects aimed at improving the health care system, while building the capacity of future quality improvement leaders.

Internship applications are now closed.

Student Applicants

Any graduate or undergraduate student was eligible to apply for the 10 paid summer internships available. Applicants are being jointly reviewed and interviewed by a Council staff member and a member of the project team. The final hiring decision for the intern will be made jointly between the two organizations.

The application period has now ended. Thank you to all the students who applied!


Interns will be employed by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council at a wage of $17 per hour, for up to 225 hours of time, which is expected to take place between June and August 2018. Interns will also be paid for an additional 7.5 hours and have travel costs covered (if required) to attend an in-person intern education day at the Council office in Vancouver on June 25. Start and end dates vary for each project, and many are flexible.

Funding is also available (up to $800 per intern) to support the dissemination of project results and can include travel/conference fees or publication costs.

Project Proposals

Project proposals were due on April 5 and our application period has now closed. All proposals have been reviewed and teams have been sent notification of the results. Thank you so much to everyone who applied.
