Summer 2020 Finance Internship Program

Invest in Your Future and Ours

Summer 2020 Finance Internship Program

The NewYork-Presbyterian Finance Summer Intern Program educates undergraduate students on the overall financial operations of a hospital. The program is designed for those who are interested in the business aspect of healthcare and eager to explore the many facets of healthcare management.

The program will expose students to Senior Hospital Administration both within and outside of Finance as well as provide them with real-world experience in the corporate world. The program intends to create a pipeline of talent for future full–time employment post-graduation.

What You Can Expect:
The Internship is an 8-week program based in New York City starting in early June. At the end of the program, students present their project results to the Chief Financial Officer, Finance Senior Leadership, Project Hosts and their Mentors.

Project work. Students are assigned to Finance projects in departments including Revenue Cycle Operations, Accounting, Patient Financial Services, Insurance, 340B, Procurement & Strategic Sourcing and HERCULES. Many projects involve cost analysis, process evaluation, financial reporting, report creation, hospital dashboards, and budgeting and accounting functions.

Mentor program. Each intern is assigned a mentor who offers support and guidance throughout the summer. Mentors are hand-selected from the Finance department and help mentees envision and take steps toward the careers they desire.

Hospital tours. To put their project work in perspective, interns are given tours of the various NYP campuses. Operational leaders explain connections to intern projects and provide the full picture of organizational activity.

Exposure to Senior Leadership. NYP leaders across many departments devote time to meet with the interns and share their personal stories, career paths, and invaluable professional advice.

Networking opportunities. From Meet & Greets to lunch sessions, the interns have many opportunities to partake in networking opportunities with employees across the organization.

Team building events. The program allows for creative ways to promote team bonding that fosters the culture of NYP.

The internship is designed for students with a distinct interest in the healthcare field. The internship is not intended for students who wish to pursue careers in investment banking or those only demonstrate a pure finance interest.
