Internships with PNHP
Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a national organization of over 18,000 physicians, medical students and other health care professionals who advocate for a single-payer national health insurance program. Our proposals for reform have appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical Association. By building public awareness, educating physicians, the public, and policy makers, harnessing media attention and shaping important legislation, PNHP hopes to build wide-spread support for a single-payer solution for our current health care crisis.
PNHP accepts interns year-round. Interns typically work 4 to 6 weeks at the national headquarters located in downtown Chicago and with various chapters across the country. Projects vary, but most tend to work half-time helping to run this busy national advocacy organization and half-time on an individual project such as organizing a rally or other event and/or researching another country’s health system or other issue.
Internship periods are set based on academic schedules.
