CSUF Internship Program


East West Medical Group offers a hands-on, service-oriented internship program for students from CSUF (California State University, Fullerton) who are looking to fulfill their academic/college internship credit requirements. Our internship is registered with and approved by the Center for Internship & Community Engagement (CICE) office at CSUF.


Most of our interns have been Health Science, Biology, or pre-medical/nursing/PA majors who are enrolled in an upper division internship course (i.e. 495 series), but CSUF students of any major are welcome to apply as long as they are in need of internship credits and have a genuine interest in alternative and integrative medicine. Although CSUF students will receive priority, the program will also consider applicants who are not CSUF students but have an exceptional and demonstrative passion for holistic healthcare and integrative medicine.
