Position: Virtual Care and Innovation Intern, GoodHealth Solution Center
Student: Health & Society Junior

Interning at the GoodHealth Solutions Center you will have an important role on the team and will be assigned various assignments throughout the semester. For the internship, you will be issued a laptop dedicated for your assignments, and you own personal workspace with a desktop setup. This internship requires about 20 hours of work per week, but this work can be completed at the office or remotely from home. The project managers are very understanding with school schedules, and will help set a schedule for the days you can be at the office. On busy weeks, like midterms, they will also work with you and set up times for video or phones conferences to work on assignments if you are unable to come into the office.

Throughout the semester you are able to shadow various members from the GHSC Team in order to learn the industry landscape. While the GHSC has multiple areas of focus, the project managers allow you to shadow as many people as you wish and they have multiple project to choose from. For my projects this past semester, I created a remote patient monitoring operations playbook, worked within an electronic health system to fix providers name misspelling to generate an accurate report, and I collected remote monitoring patient testimonies to be used for marketing and presentations. I also did a research paper over remote patient monitoring benefits, with a comparative market research analysis of different companies and how they compare to the GHSC. I was able to choose my projects at the beginning of the semester and we set deadlines throughout the semester depending on my progress. I was also assigned different but smaller tasks when they arose like, producing regular reports, helping with presentations, creating visual communication pieces, blog posts, and more. For anyone interested in the healthcare industry or project management this is an exceptional opportunity.
