|IFD, ACHE Alliance to Expand Healthcare Internships for Diverse Individuals|
The American Hospital Association's Institute for Diversity in
Health Management and ACHE have entered into a
strategic collaboration to co-promote the Summer Enrichment Program, which is
designed to grow and strengthen the pipeline of healthcare leaders from
underrepresented groups. The SEP places diverse graduate students pursuing
advanced degrees in healthcare administration or a related field in 10-week,
paid internships at healthcare organizations. As of Oct. 31, 2016, hospitals,
health systems and other healthcare organizations interested in hosting an SEP
intern in 2017 can register at www.diversityconnection.org/SEP . IFD Staff will work with organizations to match SEP students with host sites beginning in February. Internships generally will take place from June through August. The SEP will be administered by IFD and co-promoted by ACHE, primarily through ACHE chapters across the country.
