The National Partnership for Women & Families promotes access to quality affordable health care, reproductive health and rights, fairness in the workplace, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. We believe that actions speak louder than words, and for nearly four decades we have fought for every major policy advance that has helped women and families.
Health policy interns work on challenging projects across the National Partnership's health care agenda, including work on domestic health policy issues like health reform implementation and the Campaign for Better Care. The Campaign for Better Care is working to engage patients and families in improving the delivery of health care to achieve more patient-centered, quality, coordinated care – particularly for the most vulnerable populations, such as older adults with multiple chronic conditions.
At the National Partnership, interns are integrally involved in our day-to-day work, and undertake a wide range of activities. Activities will help interns develop skills needed for work in the health policy and advocacy world, including legislative and policy research, analysis, writing for a variety of audiences, and coalition-building. Interns will have the opportunity to attend exciting briefings, hearings, and other events on Capitol Hill and in other venues around town. Interns will also support the Campaign for Better Care’s work to promote patient and family engagement in new models of care. Such activities may include conducting research on best practices, developing community “scans” to better understand the health care landscape in a certain area or region, or helping to draft resource materials such as toolkits or guides.
The internship is unpaid, but is available for course credit and may be full-time or part-time.
Please note that the Health Policy Internship does not include work on reproductive health and rights, however, we encourage you to apply for the Reproductive Health Internship position if you are interested in those issues.
