Summary
    The Internship Handbook: A Guide for Students in the Health Professions provides readers with the knowledge and insight they need to effectively transition from academic coursework to workplace life. The textbook offers students a collection of best practices and resources surrounding internships, field placements, and clinical experiences.

    The opening chapter addresses the basics of getting started, beginning with selecting an internship site. Additional chapters review legal and ethical issues, offer practical tips on preparing an effective resume and acing interviews, and present professionalism basics such as social media presence, time management, and soft skills. The text reinforces the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and reveals tips and resources to facilitate successful transition from the internship to the workplace. The closing chapter features real-world stories of six interns to help students connect the material in the textbook with practical, lived experiences. Throughout, readers are provided with journal prompts that are designed to help them organize their thoughts, expand their thinking and creativity, and provide them with opportunities for reflection.

    The Internship Handbook is an exemplary resource for students in the health professions who are pursuing, preparing for, or currently placed in internship experiences.
