About the Staff Internship Program

Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group (MAPMG) is committed to developing the next generation of healthcare leaders through our immersive and comprehensive 12-week Summer Internship Program.

The Summer Internship Program is designed to expose undergraduate and graduate-level students to a wide range of career opportunities in the healthcare field, while allowing them to develop professional skills that can be transferred to any occupation or industry. Interns work along-side experienced professionals in Strategy and Communications, Project Management, Data Analytics, Research, Quality, Finance, Human Resources, and other teams and departments.

Our internship program focuses on providing aspiring healthcare professionals with the ability to develop their knowledge and skills in their field of study through hands-on work experience, mentorship opportunities, and cross-collaboration with various departments and teams. During the internship program, students grow their verbal communication skills, time and project management capabilities, and hone presentation and networking skills.

**Please note, while we recruit for interns on a rolling basis in the Spring and Fall semesters, the Summer Internship Program is the most robust and structured, as we have the largest cohort in the Summer.

Intern testimonials

"Coming from a design background, I assumed the role of a Web Design Intern within the Professional Development team and was assigned the project of creating a new section called the "Manager Toolkit" on the Professional Development and Wellness Website. With the unwavering support of my manager, and the IT team, I was afforded the freedom to explore diverse possibilities in crafting an informative and captivating webpage, pushing the limits of the web management system we used. This opportunity fostered significant growth in my web development skills and deepened my understanding of web design work in the real-world industry."

Shirui Liang
Web Design Intern
"I really valued my time working [at MAPMG] and found that everyone I worked with were so friendly and nice to work with. One of my favorite projects I worked on during the summer was converting code from SAS to Python and producing creative solutions to make the code as efficient as possible. During this experience, I developed my programming skills (Python, SQL, SAS, etc.) on top of my problem-solving, data analysis, and communication skills."
