Transitions LifeCare is committed to providing outstanding learning opportunities to future healthcare leaders and providers. We believe that by exposing students to first-hand experiences with patients and families facing serious life-limiting or terminal illness, we can de-mystify common misconceptions many have about death and end-of-life care.

Transitions LifeCare has received national recognition as a high quality, leading provider of palliative and end-of-life care serving families in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Students are selected to participate as visitors or interns to see first-hand how an interdisciplinary team provides high quality, compassionate, patient-centered care in our community.

Visitor / Shadowing Experience

Shadowing and observing out staff provides insights into daily work. Visitor opportunities are one to five days and can be clinical or non-clinical/administrative. As a shadow, you won’t provide any direct patient contact or care.

Internship Experience

Each internship is unique, suited to your program and goals. A clinical intern visits patients and may or may not provide hands-on patient care. An administrative intern assists with administrative and office projects and does not visit patients or provide care.
