New York & New Jersey

New York & New Jersey

HCC launched it New York and New Jersey Region in 2004. We are excited about the growth in this important, dynamic and diverse health region. One of our primary goals is providing paid internships in organizations that provide service to underserved and ethnically diverse populations. This is in line with our commitment to diversity in healthcare professions. Many of our host organizations provide practical experience opportunities for our interns in these settings in New York and New Jersey.

HCC partners with the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University to provide workshops and support for our interns. In 2015 HCC’s New York and New Jersey region partnered with the Einstein College of Medicine’s Bronx Health Opportunities Program at Einstein (Bronx HOPE). Bronx HOPE is a regionally articulated educational and health career pipeline program, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Health Career Opportunities Program (HCOP).

HCC also has longstanding partnerships with Montefiore Health System, Bellevue Hospital, and NYC Health + Hospitals Corporation, the largest metropolitan hospital system in the country, to host interns and support HCC. HCC also has a strong partnership with Mentoring in Medicine, a dynamic organization dedicated to increasing opportunities for students to pursue health careers.
