Kaiser Permanente exists to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. Founded in 1945, Kaiser Permanente is recognized as one of America’s leading health care providers and nonprofit health plans. We currently serve members in 8 states and the District of Columbia.
Kaiser Permanente provides 6-10-week internships that prepare high school and college students with professional training and education to help them navigate a career in health care. With robust training opportunities and competitive pay, our interns are guaranteed to feel personally rewarded and professionally fulfilled. The goal of our programs include (1) introducing underrepresented and low-income high school and college students to careers in health professions, (2) supporting students’ professional and educational development through exposure to trainings, scholarships, and practical work experiences, (3) connecting students with community partners addressing the social determinants of health, and (4) leveraging existing Kaiser Permanente employment practices to recruit, hire and retain students upon completion of internship program.
