Interns & Clinical Educator Program

  • SDMC has created partnerships with a wide range of colleges and universities to place and develop interns. As they begin their journey in the field of education, interns can expect a high level of support while experiencing best practices and educational technology.

    Internship Placement Information
    Colleges and Universities must have an approved affiliation agreement with SDMC prior to placement. Interns must pass Level II screening prior to beginning their internship at SDMC.

    All levels of intern placements must be coordinated by our Human Resources department. Student interns or professors should NOT contact school administrators directly for placement. Placements should NOT be forwarded directly to schools or content supervisors within the district by a college or university.

    Clinical Educator Training
    Teachers must be recommended by a Principal in order to host an intern. Host teachers must complete clinical educator training based on FLDOE standards. Training is conducted in a flipped model (3 hours prior to class and 3 hours of class). Training is typically held in January, March, May, August, and October.
