Health Career Connection Partnership with NACCHO – Internship Placements at Local Health Departments

Jan 06, 2021 | Shalesha Majors

NACCHO has recently partnered with Health Career Connection (HCC), a national non-profit that inspires and empowers undergraduate students, recent graduates and HCC alumni, particularly those from under-represented or disadvantaged backgrounds, to choose and successfully pursue authentic healthcare and public health careers.

HCC makes it easy for health departments to recruit and manage talented, diverse undergraduate students from local communities and nationally for 10 week, paid internships focused on COVID-19 mitigation and recovery, health equity, racial justice, health policy, data analysis, building healthy communities and community outreach and education.

For over 30 years, HCC’s innovative programs have connected health employers with over 3800 talented, underrepresented college students through internship, training, and mentorship opportunities. HCC connects organizations in all health sectors (including local public health departments) with talented and diverse future health professionals and leaders. Interns support priority projects and programs that optimize organizational performance, foster innovation, and drive growth. HCC’s ultimate aim is to improve the health of populations by motivating and developing greater numbers of value-driven, capable and diverse leaders and health professionals. HCC places a strong emphasis on providing opportunities to students of color and organizations hosting an HCC intern help increase diversity in healthcare professions.

HCC works in nine regions, and is currently looking to partner with local health departments interested in hosting summer interns. For more information, please visit this fact sheet and/or view a recorded webinar here. Please contact Jeff Oxendine (joxendine@healthcareers.org) with any questions.
