Emory Healthcare Hospital Administration Summer Internship Program

Emory Healthcare’s Hospital Administration Summer Internship is a 10-12 week, full-time program designed to provide young leaders with a comprehensive learning experience at a premier academic health system. Program participants will be exposed to hospital operations and leadership through project-based work. Project opportunities will vary and reflect both the participant’s learning goals and the needs of the hospital.

Prior to beginning the internship, the intern will finalize goals, expectations and evaluation criteria with Executive Leadership and the Program Manager. In addition to project work, candidates will have the opportunity to attend senior leadership meetings, gain exposure to other hospitals within the system, attend lunch and learns with current administrative fellows, and have the opportunity to formally present their project to the hospital's executive leadership team.
