The OHSU Administrative Internship Program allows undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to experience the healthcare profession through an administrative lens.

OHSU is accepting 15 interns for the summer of 2020 (June – August) to be placed in various healthcare departments across the organization.

In addition to the assigned project, interns will have the opportunity to experience day-to-day operations (e.g., daily readiness huddles, staff seminars and trainings, etc.), as well interact with patients, families and staff through rounds and other engagement experiences.

To support intern growth, development and networking opportunities, weekly lunches with executive leadership will be provided, including an in-depth question and answer session.

Interns will receive a stipend to support housing and living expenses throughout the summer, but are responsible for arranging and securing their own housing. They will also receive a pass valid for all Portland public transportation.
