Rubicon has been approved as an internship site for several colleges & universities in the surrounding areas for students in the Human Services field such as Social Work, Psychology and Substance Abuse Treatment. We have become an excellent resource for students interested in gaining the learning experience necessary to fulfill their curriculum requirements for masters, bachelors and associates degree programs. The students and Rubicon staff work together to maintain an environment where clients receive quality care under the supervision of our facility staff and oversight by our Clinical Director. Students are placed in all program components and function in a variety of roles depending on their capabilities and program requirements. We receive students from Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia State University, Argosy University, J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College, Virginia Union University & John Tyler Community College to name a few.
In addition to the Human Services aspect, Rubicon also provides internships to students at area colleges that are in the Accounting and Human Resources field where they are placed in our Administrative Office usually for at least one full semester. Due to the size of our agency, those students have the opportunity to get hands on experience in both the fiscal & human resources areas. Currently, we provide those services for students referred from Bryant and Stratton College.
Finally, we have an agreement with the University of Virginia where we accept nursing students in need of a clinical practicum to complete their program prerequisites. Those students are supervised by our Health Services Director and their internship is normally based out of our Detox or Co-Occurring Unit.
Rubicon also participates in the Build It Program with the University of Richmond where students volunteer on our campus primarily in the Health Services area as they gain experience in their academic focus area.
