Internships

Internship Programs  

At Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare (JHAH) we aim to train medical staff to the highest standards, to help build the Saudi medical workforce of the future. We do this by making our interns aware of professional ethics such as punctuality, innovation, reliability and honesty, while teaching them how to handle work-related stress and pressure. We help our interns develop efficient communication skills to deal with patients, and provide exposure to future employment opportunities. Reports will be made to the universities on each student’s progress towards their learning objectives.

With our large number of highly qualified clinicians, JHAH has been recognized as a center of excellence, and is accredited by the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) as a recognized training center.

All training takes place in a safe environment under the direct supervision of a designated, trained instructor in a particular healthcare specialty. Applications should be made through your university.

In line with the Saudi Vision 2030 and JHAH's commitment to be an inclusive workplace, we welcome the skills and talents of all individuals, including persons with disabilities.
