Summer Enrichment Program

Summer Enrichment Program (All states other than NY and NJ)

With an increasingly multicultural population, diversity and cultural competency issues in U.S. health care have become even more critical.

The Institute for Diversity?s Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) is helping by building a pool of diverse future leaders.

The SEP provides graduate students in health administration real-world work experience.  Interns are matched with appropriate health care
facilities, located nationwide, for a 0-12 week summer internship.  A volunteer executive from the host organization provides mentoring,
support and career advice during the internship.  The Institute supports the interns, with leadership development education and ongoing networking and mentoring opportunities.  The Institute also provides assistance with determining the best match between interns and host sites, as well as orientation sessions for hosts and interns and detailed program materials. Please visit our website at www.diversityconnection.org  or Elaine Johnson at 312-422-2630 for more details.
