At Northwell Health, you have the opportunity to use Information Technology (IT) to make a positive impact on the lives of others. That’s because our progressive Health IT capabilities are critical to our ability to deliver exceptional care for our community.
Through our Information Technology Internship, you can play a key role in advancing our solutions in areas such as strategic planning, project management, security, informatics, infrastructure, and more. Through your participation in the program, you will also be well positioned for success as a prospective Northwell Health employee. But don’t take our word – listen to what our interns had to say!
Northwell Health IT interns don’t sit on the sidelines – they’re in the game! That’s how Rebecca Logan, IT Project Administrator Intern, felt. “I was able to shadow the Project Administrators and was exposed to everything they do on a day to day basis. I was also included in all types of meetings and training. I was even invited to attend their first team outing at Citi Field, which made me really feel like I was a part of the team!”
As an Information Technology intern, you’ll learn from a department that is integral to the largest health system in New York State. Kristin Wisniewski, MBA Project Control Coordinator, discovered this during her internship. “The biggest takeaway I learned is that as a whole, Northwell Health relies heavily on the Information Services department. Information Services is the main driver behind the most current and efficient technologies available to help provide the best quality of care to patients.”
Although you’ll be working in the Information Services department, you are first and foremost, a part of the Northwell Health family. “I especially loved the culture that Northwell promotes in its facilities. I was always greeted with a smile and treated equally,” said Shaina Koch, IT Security Investigations Intern.
The Information Technology Internship can ultimately lead to a job offer. It did for Rebecca Logan, who was offered a Project Administrator position at the end of her internship, “I am very thankful for the opportunity I have been given, and look forward to all of the opportunities to come! I’m excited to see what the future has in store for me as my career unfolds at Northwell Health!”
No matter what path your career takes, an Information Technology Internship is an invaluable experience for any student. Shaina Koch, IT Security Investigations Intern, agrees. “As cliché as it sounds, the most prevalent lesson I learned is to always put in 110%. Always ask for work and ask plenty of questions. Only you can stand in the way of your success!”
The application for the Summer 2019 IT Internship Program will be opening in February of 2019. Check back for more information and be sure to join our talent community.
