2024 Intern and Host  Site Applications are Now Open! 



The Institute for Diversity and Health Equity’s Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) is a 10-week, paid internship program for graduate students that are in the process of pursuing an advanced degree within health care or a related field. Students in the program are paired with a health care organization where they benefit from experiential learning, mentorship, networking and the opportunity to learn from experts in the field. Experienced administrators serve as preceptors and mentors, providing support and career advice as well as critical early-career connections.

The Summer Enrichment Program seeks students from underrepresented backgrounds to strengthen the pipeline and build the next generation of diverse executives and leaders in health care.
