Nonprofit Healthcare Internship in OKC - Probably Unpaid

Job Description
We are passionate about achieving tangible results that benefit people.

Get your foot in the door. Rather than shuffle papers around or make thousands of copies, work side-by-side with experts. You'll enjoy the satisfaction of seeing your work make a difference while you gain valuable job experience.

At the ADA, an internship assignment can be just for the summer or as long as a couple of semesters. But no matter how much time you spend with us, you'll immediately be plunged into real, meaningful assignments.

You'll apply your educational knowledge to real-life situations while using your own creativity. You won’t be limited to the department or organization where you began your assignment.
