Carl A. Erikson Fellowship

The Graduate Program in Health Administration and Policy partners with the University of Chicago Medical Center to offer GPHAP students a range of summer internships in health care administration. Projects change from year to year but are intended to provide students with a specific experience in health care organization management while exposing them to the broader and complex aspects of health care administration.

GPHAP students are eligible to apply contingent upon both: a) taking the first required GPHAP course during the spring quarter of their first year and b) being current with all GPHAP requirements such as co-curricular summaries.

For more information please contact the GPHAP Director.
