Health Services Division (HSD) Summer Residency Program
The UPMC Health Services Division (HSD) Summer Residency is a 500-hour, paid internship, starting in mid-May. Summer Residents will have a unique opportunity to learn and contribute to the UPMC Health Services Division, while pursuing their health care career interests.
Summer Residents will gain practical health care management experience in various departments and practices throughout the HSD. Current HSD Administrative Fellows and Fellowship Directors will provide important mentorship to summer residents throughout the program.
About the Summer Residency Program
The HSD Summer Residency Program will offer opportunities to:
