Administrative Internship


The administrative internship program at the University of Chicago Medicine (UCM) is an ideal launching point for those seeking to be among the next generation of healthcare leaders. Administrative interns at UCM 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 the Vice President of the Clinical and Procedural Services (CPS) and sponsored by a senior leader of CPS to ensure that the intern receives a well-rounded experience. Current Administrative Fellows will also serve as mentors and provide structured feedback throughout the duration of 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 Vice President and executive leaders of CPS will develop internship-spanning projects that will serve to advance UCM's strategic objectives as well as align with the interests of the administrative intern. Interns will work collectively with CPS senior leaders to complete a specific long-term project and report-out at the conclusion of the internship to UCM senior leadership. Smaller scale projects may be acquired throughout the duration of the internship to aid in the interns' development and further UCM's mission of being at the forefront of medicine.
