Health Career Connection (HCC): Summer Internship Program


The goal of the internship is to provide undergraduate students interested in health careers with exposure, experience and support to choose and pursue careers in healthcare management, health policy, community health, health education and other public health careers. We also assist students that are interested in medicine but they must also have a strong interest in one of our priority fields.


HCC is offering internships in Northern California, Southern California, New England, New York and New Jersey. A limited number of Boston internships in nursing, physical therapy, speech pathology and clinical investigation are available.

Interns are placed in hospitals, clinics, health plans, public health departments, medical groups, policy or advocacy organizations and healthcare equipment vendors.


Internships are full-time 10 week paid positions. Students work under the direction of a preceptor and gain exposure to the workings of their placement organization and practical project experience.

In addition, students attend valuable seminars on career planning, graduate school preparation, leadership and cultural competency. Written internship updates and project reports are required.
