Internship Description
The specific project(s) is/are yet to be determined, and will depend on the work available and needed closer to the date of the internship.

2017 Description:
The Office of Strategy is a dynamic, eight-person, corporate-level department whose members serve as internal strategic consultants, project managers, and change leaders at NYP. After a two week orientation and immersion period, the Strategy Intern will become an active member of the Strategy Team, working on projects that include conducting internal and market research and analysis, meeting with senior medical and administrative personnel, developing strategic plans and helping to design programs to drive change at NYP. As part of the Strategy Team, the intern will participate in a series of short-term projects in collaboration with or under the supervision of senior team members. Every effort will be made to match the intern's skills and interests with projects available at the time. 

Examples of short term projects are: Federal or State health care reform projects (bundling), developing the organizational framework for our integrated delivery system, developing new business development opportunities (ex. Retail, telehealth, etc), enterprise wide service line strategic planning. In addition to short term projects and contributing to office-wide efforts, the intern will select a longer term project to own, develop, and complete over the course of the entire summer. We will work with the intern to define this project, ensuring it captures his/her interests, strengths and talents.

Evaluation Excerpt

I am grateful for the variety of perspectives I encountered during my internship from all the people I was able to talk to and learn from, and I am sure that it will come of use as I continue along the path towards physicianhood in the future.
—Julia Song '18

Presenting my CBO reimbursement policy findings to an audience of around ~20 people, including some of the highest-ranking leaders of the Division of Community and Population Health, best describes my internship experience in that it epitomizes the importance of the work given to me and the responsibility NYP gave me as well as the seriousness with which they treated me.
—Catherine Benedict '20
