Trinity Health has established a Summer Internship Program for graduate students seeking a career in healthcare administration.
President and CEO John M. Kutch says the program will serve as an introduction to the real world of healthcare management and provide an intensive learning experience for the next generation of healthcare leaders.
Scott Henry, a graduate student at Xavier University in Cincinnati, begins this week as Trinity’s first administrative intern. Scott is pursuing a Master of Health Services Administration with graduation expected in May of next year.
“We’re excited to welcome Scott to our team and look forward to providing him with an outstanding learning experience,” Mr. Kutch said. “Not only will he acquire first-hand knowledge of the healthcare industry, he’ll gain hands-on experience that engages him in every aspect of healthcare like no other program.”
Under the Summer Internship Program, administrative interns are mentored by Trinity’s administrative directors and given assignments to enhance their experience and guide their thought processes. Interns are involved in staff meetings, business management discussions, GEMBA walks, LEAN projects, job shadowing, and much more, according to Kutch.
He says Trinity Health has been approved as an official internship site for Xavier University. “We are dedicated to providing an outstanding learning, educational, and fun experience for Scott and all of our future interns,” Kutch added.
