Erika Parker ’11
“The Honors in New York Internship at the Greater New York Hospital Association in New York City was a personalized and highly rewarding experience. Attending staff meetings, assisting with hospital patient safety collaboratives, and participating in hospital site visits, I was immersed in current healthcare issues. Susan Waltman is a caring mentor who made sure I could take part in meetings and events that piqued my interest, particularly in the area of medical malpractice reform, defensive medicine, and perinatal safety collaborative. The internship reaffirmed that I am equally passionate about public health and medicine. The two fields will be intertwined in my future career.”

The Honors in New York Internship Program began in summer 2006, providing a placement for students interested in public health issues.

Only second- and third-year (based on date of enrollment) Honors students are eligible to apply. For further information, contact Maria de Rocher in the Honors Program.

Kevin Chang ’09, Health Policy Intern, Greater New York Hospital Association
Interning with the main legal and legislative representative body of hospitals in New York City and surrounding areas was an invaluable experience for someone interested in working in health care. My internship focused on improving quality and patient safety in hospitals and the management of volunteer health professionals during emergencies. I now have a better appreciation for how all agents in health care work together and how physicians can play an active role in shaping policy. As a future physician leader, I look forward to applying what I have learned to provide quality, sustainable patient care.”
