Health Advances offers a specialized summer internship program, which is an ideal opportunity for individuals seeking to combine their business interests with a passion for healthcare. An analyst intern will spend 8 to 10 weeks gaining exposure to a variety of projects for a diverse range of clients. This is a unique opportunity to work with case teams, contribute to the strategic process, and learn about the culture of Health Advances.
Health Advances tailors its intern program to suit the background of the individual. Analyst interns work with the Chief Talent Acquisition Officer prior to arrival to offer input on individual goals and to determine preferred subject matter. Each analyst intern is paired with a go-to “buddy” in addition to a formal mentor at the case team leader level. The mentor will assign work streams and offer coaching and feedback throughout the program.
Analyst interns will leverage what they have learned in the classroom while gaining valuable consulting experience. All interviews are case-oriented and provide the opportunity to work through actual examples of our projects. A successful summer internship will likely lead to a full-time offer.
- Shadowing analysts and participating in all team meetings ranging from initial brainstorming through final presentation
- Coordinating and participating in primary research through client, customer, physician and thought leader interviews
