Sought-After Healthcare Internships for Students
The healthcare field is fierce. Secure an internship to get noticed!
United States college students looking to get ahead are often using their summer to look for internships. Healthcare internships are competitive for both undergraduates and graduate students. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in healthcare occupations is expected to grow 15% into the year 2029. This is much faster than average, AND this job industry is not just for Registered Nurses and doctors. For students interested in a health care internship program, you must begin researching and looking for internships in your sophomore year of college. This familiarizes you with the skills you’ll need to be the best intern candidate. You’ll need to spend quality time preparing your internship application—from creating your internship cover letter to ensuring you have the basic, health education or medical research college courses necessary to gain valuable experience. You don’t have to be a nursing student to find an internship or job in the health market. Remember, the healthcare business needs a variety of skilled students majoring in various fields to make their businesses run smoothly. These fields include IT (Information Technology), healthcare administration, computer science, business operations and management, healthcare marketing, consulting, biostatistics and data science, HR, engineering, pharmacy, construction, and more!
The hands-on experience you can gain now will help you to become part of the upcoming generation of healthcare industry leaders. While most internship opportunities are not paid, this list includes both remote and paid internships that provide valuable work experience.
