The intern’s direct report will be the HAN Director of Communications and Policy and will work directly with the HAN Project Manager for Initiatives & Advisory Services and Project Manager for Initiatives & Member Engagement.

The Deadline for applications is March 26, 2021. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

  • Strong written and oral communication skills;
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively;

Healthcare Anchor Network (HAN) Background

HAN is a nationally recognized and growing collaboration of health systems seeking to improve health and wellbeing by addressing economic and racial inequities in the communities they serve by leveraging their institutional assets, such as hiring, procurement, and investment practices–this is referred to as adopting an anchor mission.

Internship Description:

Daily tasks will primarily include (roughly 80% of the intern’s time) developing content (case studies, templates and other resources, etc.) and conducting research on behalf of four initiative groups focused around:

  • Advancing the organizational imperative for adopting and implementing an anchor mission;
  • Implementing anchor strategies around inclusive, local hiring and internal workforce development;
  • Implementing anchor strategies around inclusive, local purchasing; and
  • Effective collaboration with community stakeholders in implementing anchor strategies.

Secondary activities (roughly 20% of the intern’s time) will include providing research related to other workstreams as well as administrative and operational support for HAN activities. The intern will play an important role in assisting the HAN project managers in advancing objectives through learning and applied experience. The intern may support other programmatic work of HAN as needs and interest arise. A list of learning objectives and deliverables can be found below.

For more information about the Healthcare Anchor Network, please visit our website (healthcareanchor.network).

Learning Objectives and Deliverables:

  • Conduct research through the development of case studies, toolkits, templates, and other resources identified by HAN colleagues and members;
  • Provide administrative and operational support for HAN activities, including note-taking during initiative group meetings and other virtual engagement activities; and
  • Perform communications and outreach to HAN members as needed.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Familiarity with coordinating and maintaining coalitions or networks is a plus
  • Familiarity with social determinants of health issues is a plus

The internship will last 3 months with a potential for extension, with a start date in early to mid-May (with some flexibility to accommodate semester schedules). The internship requires an ability to commit to 15-20 hours/week, and while we will work with the intern to set the days and times of work, these should be consistent week to week. Interns will need to have their own working computer and internet connection. The position will receive a $15 hourly stipend. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
