College Student Programs

Summer HELP Program

College students seeking assistance in making a career choice in the health care field may elect to participate in our Health Experience Learning Program (HELP). The program, which has been offered at Burke since 1976, is designed to provide the student- intern an opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of a patient care delivery system using the team approach.

The goals of HELP are two-fold: to offer the college student exposure to various careers within the health profession through hands on experience and to provide the student with the background to make a realistic career choice. These goals are met by requiring each student to attend a comprehensive nursing attendant orientation, composed of a classroom and clinical learning experience.

Following orientation, each student is assigned to one of six specialty units, including stroke, surgical orthopedic, brain injury, spinal cord injury, cardiac, pulmonary and amputee. Throughout the internship, the student can gain insight into the behavior of patients during illness and the effect a disability has on a family unit. The student can also be involved in health teaching as well as learning, thanks to lectures provided by speakers who are specialists in different health care professions. For information about this program, please call Burke’s Nursing Administration Department at (914) 597-2383.

What's Happening at Burke

Thank you to everyone for making the Burke Award special!

The celebration of the 25th Burke Award Dinner was held on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

This year’s event was extra special as we saluted and honored our Burke Healthcare Heroes who have worked tirelessly treating survivors of COVID-19, as well as traditional rehabilitation patients.

Our staff are truly heroes for the passion, dedication and professionalism they demonstrate every day, especially in the face of this unprecedented challenge. Their efforts have never wavered, and they should be recognized and applauded.

There’s still time to make a donation in support of our Healthcare Heroes.
