The Health Career Connection 2014 Paid Summer Internship Application is now available at www.healthcareers.org .

The application is due January 31, 2014.

Health Career Connection places talented, diverse undergraduate students in summer internships, providing them with invaluable exposure, experience, and mentoring to pursue health careers.

Description:

The Health Career Connection Comprehensive Summer Internship Program includes:

  • A paid, full-­­time 10-­­week internship placement in a partner organization.  Interns work under the direction of a preceptor and work on meaningful projects that are educational for the student and benefit the organization and its community. Interns also learn about the how the organization is structured and operates and about the roles of administrative and clinical professionals.
  • Workshops on key professional and personal development topics including: leadership, advocacy, cultural competence, life and career planning and graduate education preparation.
  • Site visits to a diverse set of key partner organizations to provide exposure to multiple settings and leaders.
  • Peer support and network among interns within and across regions who share similar interests, passions and career decision dilemmas but come from diverse backgrounds and experiences.
  • Mentoring from Health Career Connection’s team.
  • Connections to top graduate schools in public health and medicine for assistance with preparation.
  • Support from Health Career Connection’s network of alumni and professionals during and after the internship.

Internship stipends range between $3,000 and $4,000.

Housing and transportation are NOT provided by Health Career Connection.

If your application is selected, in person interviews are held in New York City, Boston, Chapel Hill, San Francisco/Oakland, Los Angeles, Fresno and Coachella Valley.

Qualifications:

All majors welcome! Demonstrated career interest in health care management, health policy, health education, community health and other public health options. Past work experience is not necessary-­­-­­ just a strong interest in health and public health and/or working with underserved communities in a health setting.

HCC does not provide medical or clinical internships. Students interested in becoming a provider must also have a strong interest in one of the areas described above and be willing to do an internship that is NOT clinically focused.

The focus of the Health Career Connection Program is juniors and seniors from undergraduate programs, as well as recent graduates (less than 3 years). Sophomores and freshman may be considered.

HCC strongly encourages students of color and those from disadvantaged backgrounds to apply. HCC aims to increase the ethnic diversity of health leaders.
