Internships & Opportunities

The Healthcare Administration program’s objectives are met by coupling required and elective courses with a required full-time, 400-hour internship. Strong faculty support and advising are available to all students, as are a variety of Directed Studies and Field Studies emphasizing healthcare work.

Among the organizations with which students have done internships:

  • Boston Children’s Hospital
  • Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Boston Medical Center
  • Tufts New England Medical Center
  • NYU Langone Medical Center
  • Brigham and Women’s/MGH Health Care Center at Foxborough
  • Veterans Health Administration
  • Genesis HealthCare
  • Community Health Center Association of Connecticut
  • Angels Neurological Centers
  • Shields Health Care Group
  • LeeSar (Healthcare supply chain management)
  • Owens & Minor (Healthcare supply chain management)

Majors are required to complete at least one internship for graduation. The internship is a crucial piece of the students’ professionalization in the field and they are encouraged, if possible, to take more than one. Those pursuing a minor in Healthcare Administration are also encouraged to complete a full-time internship.

Robust Alumni Network Provides Important Access

In addition to alumni who do on-campus recruiting and individual mentoring, every February the student Healthcare Society invites recent alumni to campus for what can best be described as a speed-dating form of networking.

Students and alums trade resumes and business cards in a 10-minute meeting before shifting to a new seat and a new meeting. It is designed to give students access to a broad spectrum of contacts in the field.
