The LiveWell Initiative Academy LWIA, since inception in 2011 has been running its carefully designed and impactful Student Rotation and Structured Internship Training Programme in Behavioral, management and health science disciplines.
The organization has hosted several undergraduate internships programmes from tertiary institutions from within and outside the country such as: Babacock University Ilisan Remo,University of Lagos, Lagos State University, Madonna University Okija, Des Moines University Iowa and University of Ariziona.
This year, the participants of the internship programme comprised of students of: Public Health and Social Work from Babcock University, Social Work from the University of Ilorin, Accounting students from the University of Legon Ghana and Students of International Business from the United States International University Kenya.
The students were grouped and placed in the various departments of the organization (Programme Planning and Implementation, Grants and Funding, Logistics and Coordination, Research and Surveillance and the LWI Academy) and they worked and made weekly presentations on tasks given to them by their preceptors.
At the end of their programme, the interns carried out and made presentations on “Capstone” Research projects.
The interns learnt a lot and the experience will definitely make them stand out among their colleagues in school.
