The ACHSM Health Management Internship Program (HMIP) gives you all you need for a successful career as a manager in the health sector.

The HMIP has been offered by the Australasian College of Health Service Management (ACHSM) for over 45 years.  Hundreds of clinicians or successful people from other career paths such as administration, law or finance have made a successful transition to a role as a health manager following HMIP. Some are now health executives and CEO’s across health in NSW and elsewhere.

Who gets selected? 

The selection process is highly competitive and we receive far more applications than we have internships available.  Successful applicants are generally recognised by peers and managers as a high performer with great potential for a management career. They are passionate and committed, strong communicators, self-confident, socially adept and great team players. 

They have already demonstrated that they stand out from the crowd by their achievements at work and in different areas of life such as university; leadership roles, awards, high GPA; sporting accomplishments; or recognition at work for contribution and performance.
