    ACHE, IFD Alliance to Expand Healthcare Internships for Diverse Individuals


      "ACHE and the American Hospital Association's Institute for Diversity in Health Management have entered into a strategic collaboration to co-promote IFD's Summer Enrichment Program, which is designed to grow and strengthen the pipeline of healthcare leaders from underrepresented groups. The Summer Enrichment Program places diverse graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in healthcare administration or a related field in 10-week, paid internships at healthcare organizations. As of Oct. 31, 2016, hospitals, health systems and other healthcare organizations interested in hosting a Summer Enrichment Program intern in 2017 can register at diversityconnection.org/SEP. IFD staff will work with organizations to match Summer Enrichment Program students with host sites beginning in February. Internships generally will take place from June through August. The Summer Enrichment Program will be administered by IFD and co-promoted by ACHE, primarily through ACHE Chapters across the country."
