How can you get involved with The Institute? You can:

Support the Institute’s Mission

  • If you are a savvy CEO or diversity leader, your health care organization can become a member of the Institute. As an Institute member, you have access to the tools and talent that can enhance your organization’s day-to-day operations and transform your facility into one of the leading culturally competent medical centers in the country.
  • If you become a Sponsor, your contributions will help us continue to fulfill our commitment to the future of America’s hospitals and other health care providers.
  • As a Sponsor, you can make a tax-deductible contribution to our general fund or to a specific fund, such as our Summer Enrichment Program or our biennial leadership and education conference.

Grow Tomorrow’s Leaders

  • Your organization can host an intern through the Institute’s Summer Enrichment Program, which places promising young minority graduate students in internships in health care management, and can give your organization access to up-and-coming diverse talent.
  • You can also put your organization in the forefront of efforts to change the face of leadership in health services management by offering a scholarship.
  • If you are a current minority graduate student or recent graduate of a health administration degree program, you can apply for a paid summer internship through the Summer Enrichment Program. Students can also apply for one of several scholarships established by the Institute and its partners.

Strengthen Today’s Workforce

  • As an Institute member, your organization can post jobs and search for qualified diverse candidates in the Institute’s Career Center.
  • If you are a highly motivated student or professional, you can look for a job in the Career Center, your gateway to opportunities in health management.
