For more than 15 years, GNYHA has devoted significant resources to develop internship programs for both undergraduate
and graduate students pursuing careers in health services administration. The cornerstone of these educational efforts is GNYHA's Summer Enrichment Program (SEP), a paid internship opportunity for students pursuing degrees in health care management. The three-month program, which is highly competitive and receives applications from students at colleges and universities around the nation, provides underrepresented minority students with experiences in health care administration. SEP internship students are matched with participating GNYHA member facilities and on-site preceptors who ensure that students have the opportunity to learn about the major issues, skills, and responsibilities involved in day-to-day management of health care facilities. The SEP is designed to promote racial and ethnic diversity in health care management.Read all
