Interns

 

Paid Internships

HCC provides full-time, 10 week paid summer health internships in leading health organizations.

 

This hands-on experience is the primary vehicle through which HCC provides practical exposure, experience and mentoring to empower students to advance their healthcare or public health careers.

Our programs and activities, such as professional development workshops and networking events, are structured around and build on the paid internship at the host organization.
