Altru provides our interns with exciting opportunities in the healthcare field. Read what previous interns had to say about their experience with us.
Mike Little, Manager Primary Care
"While attending UND as a Public Administration undergraduate, I had the good fortune to do a healthcare administration internship at Altru Health System. I shadowed senior leadership, built my professional network, received mentoring, gained hands-on experience, and worked on high-profile projects. Everyone at Altru is so nice and helpful. It was truly a unique and valuable learning experience. I highly encourage anyone interested in healthcare leadership to apply for an internship at Altru. I did and now have my current job as Altru's Manager of Primary Care Programs because of it."
Bill Jacobson, Administrative Intern
“The internship opportunity I have had the privilege of participating in is more than I could have ever imagined. Through this great experiential learning opportunity, I have learned many things that you can never learn in a classroom. The most important part of my internship has been the people that I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with. What I have learned from them will guide me in both my professional and personal life. I have been able to make great connections with countless Altru employees who emulate the culture and values here. Altru Health System is truly an amazing place to work with a fantastic group of people.”

“I had the opportunity to work in the capacity of a Primary Care Administration Intern with the Altru Health System. The dynamic work environment was an unbelievable experience to gain perspective and to contribute to the Health System directly. Having the opportunity to shadow various members of the senior leadership team as well as focus on specific projects was a worthwhile experience. In just a few short months I have gained valuable networking skills and built relationships that I will maintain throughout my career. I would highly recommend looking into becoming a part of the Altru Family through an internship experience.”
