Project Asian Health Education and Development is an 8-week summer internship program designed to give training and experience to college students who have an interest in pursuing a career in healthcare. Project AHEAD 2020 will take place Monday, June 15, 2020 through Friday, August 14, 2020, and will be located in lower Manhattan.
Students will be exposed to various healthcare careers, and gain an understanding of the history and dynamics of the New York Asian American community and of current health issues impacting the health status of Asian Americans in the United States. Interns will have the opportunity to create and implement a community health project, attend seminars and workshops and shadow healthcare professionals.
Interns will receive a $1,000 stipend for the summer program. The Health Center will not be responsible for housing accommodation, food or travel expenses. If accepted applicants are not New York City residents, please contact your school for possible NYC housing opportunities available to interns.
Program requirements include currently an undergraduate student, interest in healthcare and the Asian American community, and committed to working full-time, Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., including some early mornings and weekends. We cannot accommodate international students or students who are studying temporarily in the United States with the intention of returning home after completing their studies.
Applications are only accepted online, and include an online application, personal statement and letter of recommendation. Complete applications (including the letter of recommendation) must be submitted no later than Friday, February 14, 2020. Late applications will not be accepted. Academic transcripts and resumes are not required and will not be accepted. Applicants may be contacted for an interview for more information. These interviews will take place between February 24 and 28, 2020.
