Special Annoucement

Dear AHRMM Members and AHRMM17 Attendees,

Have you ever considered hosting an intern at your hospital or company? If not, this may be the year to do so, and if you have established internship positions, AHRMM may be able to introduce you to some well-qualified candidates to fill them.

AHRMM has invited students from some of the top supply chain programs in the Washington D.C. area to attend AHRMM17 Conference & Exhibition and learn about careers in the healthcare supply chain. AHRMM will be hosting a networking reception for the students and providing a special education session for them on Tuesday, July 25th.

If your organization has an intern position or is interested in creating* an internship and you would like to interview students at the AHRMM conference, please contact Sarah Oaks at soaks@inspired-consulting.us.org.

AHRMM will provide your contact information or general email address to interested students whereby you can receive resumes and potentially set up face-to-face meetings at AHRMM17.

Students attending this year's conference are primarily graduate students from Johns Hopkins, George Washington, George Mason, Marymount, and Virginia Commonwealth universities pursuing degrees in:

  • Supply Chain & Analytics
  • Business Administration
  • Pharmacology & Physiology
  • Health Care Management
  • Enterprise Risk Management and Healthcare
  • Health Administration

Invest in the future! Hire an intern.

*If you do not currently have an internship program in place, please check with your Human Resources department about any policies or restrictions on having an intern serve in your department before contacting Sarah/AHRMM.
