Health Programs Guide to Internships

This Health Programs Guide to Internships is intended to provide information and assist ISU’s health-related programs with the procedures for Affiliation Agreements and placement of students and residents in clinical internships, rotations, and field experiences. 

Affiliation Agreements

Affiliation Agreements are contracts between an ISU health-related program and external facilities such as hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, schools, and other facilities that allow student interns and residents to gain clinical experience. Each health-related program should designate a program coordinator to be responsible for initiating, submitting, tracking, and storing its Affiliation Agreements. The Office of the General Counsel facilitates the legal review, negotiation, approval, and execution of Affiliation Agreements that are not pre-approved Affiliation Agreement Templates (AATs). See the new 'Affiliation Agreement Review Guide' - coming soon - for more information. 

Master Affiliation Agreements may include all or multiple health-related programs at ISU. These are initiated, negotiated, processed, and maintained by the Office of the General Counsel. All currently executed master agreements are available to access by designated program coordinators, faculty, and staff via the Office of the General Counsel’s share folder. Contact Jason Russell ( in the Office of the General Counsel to request access.
