Our Externship Courses Will Help You Land a Job

Are you looking for a school that provides hands-on training in a workplace environment? The externship* courses at Miami-Jacobs will provide you with the training you’ll need get a job you want. 

What is an Externship?

An externship is a learning experience unlike any other. Learning in the classroom can be effective, and applying that knowledge in a lab setting certainly helps. In your externship, you will be placed in a local business or organization where you can practice everything you’ve learned. 

At Miami-Jacobs, we embrace the fact that every student learns differently. Our externship courses are just one of the many ways we accommodate students who learn better outside of the classroom. We know what it takes to succeed, and we want to help you get there. 

What Kinds of Externship Courses Does Miami-Jacobs Offer?

Miami-Jacobs has been building roots in the community since 1860. For the past 150 years we have built relationships with local businesses and organizations in order to help our students gain hands-on experience. 

We offer several externship options (may vary by campus selection):

Criminal Justice Externship

We are excited to offer the Criminal Justice Externship to our students hoping to pursue a career in the justice system. You can work with professionals who carry years of experience in the courtroom and legal system. 

Medical Assistant Practicum

One of the best ways that you can apply your skills and knowledge gained from class is through the Medical Assistant Practicum offered at Miami-Jacobs. You will work with medical administrative staff so you can learn how to become an important member of the medical community. 

How Does an Externship Work?

Towards the end of your program, you will meet with an Externship Coordinator who will work with you to discover which externship course works best for you. Soon you will be able to apply your skills and knowledge under the supervision of an experienced professional. 

Once you begin your externship you will provide weekly reports on what you’ve learned and your attendance. Your Externship Coordinator will discuss your progress with your supervisor, who will also provide constructive feedback to help you improve.
