Kaiser Permanente introduced the opportunity to intern at its Sacramento hospital for an 8-week period to high school students in the region. The summer internship would pay $10.50 to $14.00 an hour.

“Personally, I wanna be a pharmacist when I’m older,” internship applicant Kenneth Dato said. “So I’m going to try and get an opportunity to see what that’s like and learn first hand from professionals.”

Kenneth hopes, if selected, to use the opportunity to widen his horizons in the medical field.

“If you do well in the internship, they can provide you an opportunity to get a job after college and possibly fund for your college education which is something that I would really enjoy,” Dato said.
