Hands-On Non-Employee Training Program

Student Affiliations

Affiliation Agreement

A current affiliation agreement needs to be in place between KRH and the employee's employer to move forward with educational placements for training rotations. Please contact us as soon as possible to ensure an agreement is current and in place well in advance of an educational experience. This cannot be done by the individual departments and must be approved by the Student Affiliations department.
