JOB SUMMARY: Interns will be assigned to a specific department in which they will be given the opportunity to learn about healthcare.

In addition to attending regularly scheduled meetings with the department, the intern is responsible for directing a number of special projects. Projects are selected by the department manager/director.

I would like to sponsor an intern to attend NHRMC's LEAN Bootcamp to learn this process, and coach the intern through a project of determining needs of behavioral health patients in our area by HomeCare services, determining what services are available, and make a recommendation to the Senior Team on a path to take for delivery of care for these patients. The primary learning of the intern will be use of the LEAN process for business project management and proposal. Current knowledge of behavioral health patients and their needs is not necessary, as we have resources who can assist with the clinical expertise, but the intern will need to have an interest in healthcare projects to make this experience worthwhile and successful. A self-directed college student with initiative, problem-solving skills, and interest in healthcare would benefit by documented education of the LEAN process, and a very clear example of their use of the process as verification of competence, and a worthwhile business presentation as experience with healthcare executives (good addition to a resume).
