MEDICAL INTERNSHIP
This internship program is designed for individuals pursuing a career as a health care provider; it offers the opportunity to gain experience in the healthcare field, train as a medical assistant, and engage in direct patient care. Our interns work alongside staff, medical assistants and health care providers to deliver high quality primary and limited specialty care to under-served populations throughout Atlanta. The internship includes both direct patient care tasks and administrative assistance needed to maintain clinic flow and follow up.

This unpaid internship is designed to expose future health care professionals to the medical field and inspire them to care for vulnerable populations. Program benefits include:

  • Training as a medical assistant including vital signs, patient histories, EKG,
    x-ray, spirometry, phlebotomy, and care coordination
  • Direct patient care experience
    Work alongside primary and specialty care providers
  • Opportunities for letters of recommendation
  • Documented health care experience hours

Program requirements include:

  • Vaccination against COVID-19
  • A commitment of one academic semester. This can be extended if mutually beneficial
  • Minimum commitment of one (1) full clinic day or two (2) half clinic days a week. Because this program is built into the actual clinic schedule, we ask that interns make it their priority to be consistent for their shifts.

The internship process is highly competitive because we only have limited capacity.
Due to a large number of applicants, only those chosen for the interview round will be contacted.

NONPROFIT MANAGEMENT INTERNSHIP
The nonprofit management internship is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in management, health care administration and public health. Interns will work alongside our senior leadership team and administration team gaining experience in human resources, analytics, financial oversight, organizational policy, and outreach. The capstone project this semester will focus on designing an employee evaluation process. This internship is unpaid and we are happy to complete any necessary paperwork if your institution allows you to use this internship for credit.
Program requirements:
  • A commitment of one academic semester. This can be extended if mutually beneficial
  • A commitment of one full day or two half days per week
