I would stay away from hospital internships. The industry is changing and they want outside people to come in and fix. For example, if you want to fight the IRS you want someone from the IRS working for you. Whether it's Finance, Supply Chain, HR, or clinical operations you will have much more value (especially with a MBA) coming from an ERP vendor, consulting firm, or even a Lifesciences company to them than a administrative leadership program fellow.

Some hospitals definitely hire MBA interns. Last year was tough as they all got killed by Covid but maybe this year will be different

You should look at Qualtrics. If you like data, healthcare, and actually helping folks.

Lol I don't, my bestfriend does and he loves it. A lot of ex consultants go there, it's a really hard place to get in. He's told me it's a solid place though.

Possible to get an internship if you have connections, apply to private hospitals, or apply to larger systems (Kaiser, Mayo, Intermountain). It’s tougher to get into university AMCs as those internships are usually reserved for MHSA students. That being said, full time positions are a different story. I work in strat plan and we have MBAs, JDs in our group. Last piece of advice - try to look for health systems that have intentionally created strategy teams/departments. There are a lot of “Strategy” groups out there that don’t actually do strategy.

Try, strategist

Job for fresher or internship? In JavaScript or PHP. My wife has completed Master's in Math (2019). She wants to start her career in IT. She has completed HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP (All at basic level). She has also created some small projects for learning. Does anyone has any references for internship or job as a fresher?

Many of my health & fitness colleagues are finding themselves out of work. The next big question is, will they ever go back to a gym or health club. While I hope the answer is yes, we must live in the here and now and create new opportunities for the industry.
