Shaping the Future of Health Care
The Administrative Internship Program at the University of Chicago Medicine is an ideal launching point for those seeking to be among the next generation of health care leaders. Administrative interns at UChicago Medicine will have the opportunity to strengthen their understanding of hospital operations and hospital management in one of the nation's leading academic medical centers.
During the summer, interns will be mentored by an executive leader in one of the institutions’ service lines as well as sponsored by the Chief Operating Officer to ensure that the intern receives a well-rounded experience. Current administrative fellows will also serve as mentors and provide structured feedback throughout the internship.
Over the course of the internship, the administrative interns have the opportunity to work on their leadership, analytical and communication skills. Prior to the start of the internship, the respective executive leaders will develop internship-spanning projects that will serve to advance UChicago Medicine's strategic objectives as well as align with the interests of the administrative intern. Past interns have completed projects in heart and vascular, radiology, and clinical and procedural services, among others.
Interns will work collectively with leaders across UChicago Medicine to complete a specific long-term project and report-out at the conclusion of the internship to UChicago Medicine senior leadership. Smaller scale projects may be acquired throughout the duration of the internship to aid in the interns' development and further UChicago Medicine's mission of being at the forefront of medicine.
