Internship in Healthcare Consulting
We offer internship opportunities on a very selective basis. We attract talents from some of the top academic institutions in the world ranging from Johns Hopkins Institute of Public Health, USA and Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai to Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad and Administrative Staff College of India, Hyderabad.
As we do for our regular employees, we look for exceptional talent, high energy and strong values. For us, an internship means a great opportunity to know each other and hence, a strong likelihood of ongoing relationship. That’s precisely why we have quite a rigorous approach to select interns, which requires multiple rounds of interviews and a case study discussion, in some cases.
Internship at Medium offers a host of unique advantages. From day one, you will get to work on a real-life, on-going engagement. Based on your interest and the duration of your internship, we will work out a module which will enable you to see it through to completion. You will also have one of the Engagement Managers personally guiding you on an on-going basis. While you will have ample opportunity to get into problem solving and analysis, you will also be required to get into execution. That’s the only way we can offer a blend of rich exposure and experience, not to forget the opportunity to personally interact with some of the industry veterans.
Stipend and other terms offered by us compare favorably with top-ranking competing organizations.
