Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution that provides pediatric health care and helps our patients more than 528,000 times each year in a setting designed just for their needs.
With the increasing focus on health economics, business and patient care support services and public health infrastructure, careers in health administration are in demand. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ Careers in Health and Mentorship Program (CHAMP) provides young adults in Los Angeles the opportunity to gain practical experience and competencies essential to an entry-level career in health administration.
CHAMP interns participate in a series of career readiness workshops focused on, but not limited to, understanding hospital operations and infrastructure, finance, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. All interns are then matched with one department within the hospital, where they will gain practical experience through a project-based internship with an administrative healthcare professional. The internship will provide the opportunity to learn essential skills for entry-level employment, build significant professional relationships, and establish a defined career pathway.
