Summer Enrichment Program

For over 20 years, GNYHA has devoted significant resources to the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP), a paid internship opportunity that promotes racial and ethnic diversity in health care management. The highly competitive three-month program for students pursuing degrees in health care management—which receives applications from students at colleges and universities around the nation—provides underrepresented minority students with experiences in health care administration. SEP students are matched with participating GNYHA member facilities and on-site preceptors who ensure that the students learn about the major issues, skills, and responsibilities involved in day-to-day management of health care facilities. Members of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are encouraged to apply to become SEP students.


COVID-19 case rates have been consistently improving over the past few weeks in the tri-state area. In light of this improving outlook, GNYHA will be hosting a limited 2022 Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) for a small cohort of qualified students. 2022 SEP Interns will engage in a six-week hybrid in-person and virtual program that runs from Monday, June 13 to Friday, July 22.


SEP Interns gain a unique insight into the inner workings of GNYHA member hospitals and health care systems from the perspective of senior leadership. Each student will be assigned a hospital operations project that matches their interests.


Applications for the 2022 cohort are now open and will close April 22.
