The Healthfirst Internship Experience

The Healthfirst Summer Trailblazer Program is a 10-week paid internship. The program provides an immersive and interactive learning experience that lays a foundation for continued leadership development and success. Each summer, we welcome students from various colleges and universities for the Healthfirst Summer Trailblazer Program. These students come to Healthfirst to learn about our mission and to make an impact on our organization and our members.

Our program is known for providing valuable career experience and leadership development. The high level of mentorship, guidance and engagement that interns receive distinguishes our program from others. Our goal is not only to provide insight into our business, but also connect interns to our mission and to help them understand why what we do matters to both our members and the communities we serve. Interns become part of the Healthfirst family and their fresh perspectives, enthusiasm, and innovation fuel our organization as we forge a path to success together.

Hear From Our Summer Trailblazers

Burnsley L.

The program provided me with excellent exposure to various aspects of the healthcare industry, and I was able to start developing a solid professional network that was genuinely invested in my success. The internship pushed me to grow in my role and beyond, and I enjoyed every moment of it.

Avital K.

From day one, I was entrusted with projects most companies would consider too challenging for newbies. I was taught to persevere and empowered to question. By the end of the internship, I was the administrator of multiple security tools and was given a full time offer.

Joining Healthfirst’s Internship program is undoubtedly the best decision I could've made to start my career in IT Audit. The Early Career Recruitment team designed a program that allowed me to transition seamlessly from the Marine Corps by providing meaningful career experience, immersing us in company culture and facilitating the building of strong relationships with employees.

Isabel A.

While interning at Healthfirst, I was able to collaborate on multiple projects that motivated me to see how altruistic and social health goals are accomplished through health insurance by transitioning Medicaid and Medicare plans to a value-based framework. I am excited to be a part of upholding that mission and framework full-time and to continue working towards ensuring that healthcare is a right for our members.

Matthew D.

I became a member of the Application Development team, where I helped develop Healthfirst’s iOS application. Healthfirst truly creates an environment that stimulates growth for its employees by providing the needed support and tools. Healthfirst also creates a culture that encourages diversity, the rise of leaders, growth, continuous learning, and success.

Estelle H.

Most college graduates are expected to know the career they want to pursue right away, but I had no idea what to do—except that I wanted to work in tech for a greater purpose. Healthfirst is the perfect environment for that; I'm proud to be a part of the pilot IT Early Career Development program where my growth and mentorship is not just valued, but prioritized.
