Host a Summer Intern to Cultivate Diversity in Healthcare Management

The Institute for Diversity in Health Management is looking for host sites to participate in its Summer Enrichment Program. The program places promising, minority graduate students in immersive internships at hospitals and medical centers, giving the students a real-world internship experience.

Acting as a host site in the SEP helps cultivate diversity among future leaders, allowing the healthcare field to better serve communities. Participation in the SEP also demonstrates that a hospital is committed to inclusive cultural diversity in the healthcare profession, and the facilities get an early opportunity to recruit these top students from accredited national health training programs.
