Interested in learning about an internship opportunity in health policy? Join Nancy De Lew as she describes the program and answers your questions. Friday, March 12, 1:30-2:30 PM CST.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is currently seeking students for a summer intern program. ASPE serves as the principal advisor to the Secretary of HHS on policy development and is responsible for major activities in the areas of policy coordination, legislative development, strategic planning, policy research, evaluation, and economic analysis. Students will gain experience in a fast-paced and inclusive team-based work environment, contribute to the production of analytic papers, and be exposed to a wide breadth of health policy. The Office of Health Policy works on a wide array of topics relating to health insurance coverage, access, financing, spending, quality, and data.
Interns will work in collaboration with staff on research projects and will have the opportunity to present their findings to the Office. Applicants must be graduate or undergraduate students in good academic standing. At this time, we have several unpaid virtual positions and hope to have paid positions. Because our staff are working remotely now (February 2021), internships may begin as virtual positions. If staff return to the office, interns may be able to work in person but may continue on a virtual basis. We welcome interns from a wide array of backgrounds. The intern program will likely start in June and run through August. Application deadline is April 1.
Please register in advance on Zoom. Upon completing the registration, you will receive an email with more details.
