Ellen Taney, Union University
"The Healthcare Management Program has opened so many doors for me that I never knew existed. It showed me that someone with a liberal arts education can use their unique perspective to have a significant impact at a hospital. I felt like a valuable member of the team, and I know that the projects I worked on will have an actual impact on patients. So many other internships are about making copies and doing busy work with no real goal, but it was not the case here. This internship was so meaningful and it has truly changed my outlook on healthcare."Submit your resume

During the HMP you are not "just an intern", everything you work on has the capacity to touch the lives of others. I enjoyed every single moment and by the end of the 10-weeks, I couldn't believe it was over. I couldn't have asked for a more phenomenal start to my healthcare career.Submit your resume
