Summer 2021 will be HCC’s 31st year of providing students with life-changing, career-launching internships.

During the internship, students gain valuable real-world experience and mentorship and complete meaningful projects. Interns also advance their professional skills and personal development through HCC workshops and trainings. HCC provides extensive exposure to health careers and connections to health professionals through workshops and events guiding students towards their authentic health career path. Interns become part of the HCC family of over 3800 alumni who are health leaders and professionals in health care, public health, mental health and other health sectors and are working to advance health improvement and equity.
