Internship Assignments & Required Evaluations

Expectation Statement - Worksheet A
The Intern and Internship Supervisor should work together to develop a list of expectations and objectives for this internship experience to address key areas:

  • specific internship objectives, responsibilities, and projects
  • special projects
  • dress code
  • anticipated starting and ending date
  • work hours and compensation
  • other pertinent information (what the internship involves and asks of the intern)

This assignment should be completed by the Intern and the Internship Supervisor and submitted through this site. It can be mailed or faxed to the Program Director of Wellness Management at the Fisher Institute one month prior to the student beginning the internship experience (this allows time to process the required university contracts).

Mid-term Evaluation 
This evaluation is designed to provide structured feedback for the Intern, the Internship Supervisor, and the Program Director on the Intern's progress. Based on initial evaluations, adjustments can be made to maintain a meaningful and productive experience for all parties involved.

The Mid-term Evaluation form and Definition of Evaluation Terms should be used to evaluate the Intern's performance and progress toward meeting the objectives set forth in the Expectation Plan (Worksheet A).

The Intern and Internship Supervisor should discuss and agree upon the manner in which the Intern will be evaluated. It is suggested that each provide feedback independently, then come together for the final copy to be submitted to the Program Director of Wellness Management. Again, differing views may occur and are expected, and should be reported accordingly.

The Intern's demonstrated strengths, areas for growth, and comments from the Intern and Internship Supervisor should be reported on the evaluation form. The Mid-term Evaluation form must be signed and dated by both the Intern and Internship Supervisor, and submitted through this site. If you prefer it can also be mailed or faxed to the Program Director of Wellness Management at the end of week 7 (week 5 during summer semester).

Expectation Statement - Worksheet B
From Worksheet A (completed before the beginning of the internship), indicate how each expectation and objective was achieved, providing an explanation for each. The Intern and Internship Supervisor should work together to review the progress toward meeting the original expectations and objectives and report how future planning may be improved or enhanced to help meet those expectations and objectives not met, and possibly exceed those which were met.

Differing views may occur and are expected, and should be reported accordingly. This assignment should be submitted through this site. If you prefer it can be completed and mailed or faxed to the Program Director of Wellness Management at the end of week 15 (week 10 during summer semester).

Final Evaluation
Like the mid-term evaluation, the final evaluation is designed to provide structured feedback for the Intern, the Internship Supervisor, and the Program Director of Wellness Management on the Intern's progress at the end of the internship experience.

The Final Evaluation form and Definition of Evaluation Terms should be used to provide an evaluation of the Intern's performance and progress toward meeting the objectives set forth in the Expectation Plan (Worksheet A).

Similar to the mid-term evaluation, the Intern and Internship Supervisor should provide feedback independently, and then come together for the final copy to be submitted to the Program Director of Wellness Management.

The Final Evaluation form, including all comments and suggestions, must be signed and dated by both the Intern and Internship Supervisor. Please submit the evaluation through this site. If you prefer it can be mailed or faxed to the Program Director of Wellness Management at the end of week 15 (week 10 during summer semester).

Internship Site Evaluation
The Experience Report represents important information valuable to both the Fisher Institute (including its Internship Library) and to future student interns. Along with internship supervisor evaluations of student performance, the report constitutes a critical factor in the determination of the final internship grade.

The site evaluation is completed by the Intern at the end of the internship experience and is submitted to the Program Director of Wellness Management with multiple documents:

  • Worksheet B
  • the Final Evaluation form
  • Student Internship Experience Report

The purpose of the form is to collect subjective information from the Intern regarding the internship experience. The information provided is filed in the Internship Library for confidential and proprietary use by future wellness management students considering this internship site.

Note: All forms can be submitted via e-mail using the forms on the Web site or by mailing/faxing the forms provided in this manual. The Site Evaluation, Worksheet B, Final Evaluation and Experience Report are all due by the end of week 15 during the academic year or week 10 during the summer semester.

Student Internship Experience Report
The Student Internship Experience Report is designed to provide a detailed description and ultimate student evaluation of the internship experience. The focus of the report will be on what occurred, the results of student internship activities (assignments), and what was learned. For detailed information refer to the Student Internship Experience Report section.
