The goal of the Savvy Health Solutions Internship Program is to provide a relevant and successful learning experience for participants who are interested in exploring a career path in a Health and Wellness related field.

This program will provide interns the opportunity to apply the concepts and skills gained during their academic program to a "real world" health and wellness setting. During the Intern program, interns will participate in the facilitation of personal training sessions, program design, group exercise classes, fitness assessments, functional movement screens, health education classes, fun runs, and other wellness related activities as assigned.

SMUD has an extensive, award-winning on-site employee wellness program that has been managed by Savvy Health Solutions since 2004. The primary location of the internship will take place at the SMUD campus located at 6251 S Street in Sacramento; however, interns may be asked to participate in program activities located at alternate SMUD campuses in the Sacramento area.
