have you heard about the Undergraduate Healthcare Leadership Internship (UHLI) Program through the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership?
The Hanley Center’s mission is to develop Maine’s healthcare workforce. The Hanley Center is offering 16 PAID summer internships at a variety of healthcare organizations across the state. Students should consider the Center’s mission when filling out their application, and priority will be given to applicants with strong ties to the state of Maine and an interest in practicing here once they join the workforce.
Deadline for submission is Feb 9, and decisions will be announced in early March.
A description of the program can be found at: http://www.hanleyleadership.org/leadership-programs/undergraduate-internships/
And internships are posted at http://www.hanleyleadership.org/leadership-programs/undergraduate-internships/internships/
The application and recommendation form are online at http://www.hanleyleadership.org/leadership-programs/undergraduate-internships/apply-internship/
IMPORTANT: UHLI asks that students meet with and discuss their applications with their advisors. If interested, please make an appointment with Mary or Hannah and make sure that you have read the Hanley website and thought about and address the mission of Hanley Center in your application.
- They will have so many qualified applicants that students that cannot demonstrate a strong connection to the state of Maine are unlikely to be considered.
- Make sure you follow all directions.
- All materials should be uploaded as .pdf files.
- It is up to you to ensure that letter writers submit their letters.
- Choose their top 3 sites. You will write a cover letter for each of those sites, and you should make sure to address the qualifications as you apply to that specific site. These cover letters will be considered by the application committee. Historically, the Portland internship sites have received the most applications, and so students keen on receiving an internship might want to consider sites elsewhere in the state.
- As these opportunities are paid, we request that students NOT ask sites for academic credit for their internships.
From the Middlebury News Room:
MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Four Middlebury College alumni have been named to the 2017 Forbes 30 Under 30 list. Now in its sixth year, the list features 600 up-and-coming professionals across 20 industries.
Shane Scranton ’12 and Nate Beatty ’13 are featured together in the Enterprise Technology category for the company they launched in 2014 called IrisVR. The company creates virtual reality software for the building industry to help architects (and their clients) envision what a space will look and feel like before it gets built.
In the Healthcare category, Kevin O’Rourke ’09, a medical student at Weill Cornell Medical College, was highlighted for his work on colorectal cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. O’Rourke was lead author on a 2015 paper in the scientific journal Cell that described his work on deactivating, then reactivating a gene in mice that caused – then cured – colorectal cancer. Sloan Kettering described the study as among the “most compelling work” of that year.
Akshay Khanna ’09, vice president of strategy for the Philadelphia 76ers, is profiled in the sports category. Among his notable achievements, Forbes writes, Khanna “has led the acquisition and merger of two eSports teams for the Sixers, manages the team’s entrepreneur innovation lab, developed a StubHub-partnered ticketing platform for Sixers games, and negotiated an estimated $25 million jersey sponsorship deal with StubHub.”
Forbes says they received more than 15,000 nominations for the 600 positions.
Congrats to all!

To all Student Org Leaders!
Do you find McCullough to be boring and drab? Do you sometimes wish that a giant wrecking ball or box of fireworks would just take it out? Well, so does Student Activities!
Unfortunately, it’s going to be a few more years until we can get a new building built. BUT in the meantime, we’ve got to do the best with what we’ve got.
Come to our annual Cocoa and Collaboration event on Thursday, January 19th from 4:30-6:00pm in the Crossroads Cafe to collaborate with other students and student orgs to propose new ideas for what to do with spaces in McCullough. This year, we’re retaking McCullough.
Do you want to turn Crossroads Café into a giant ball pit for kids in the community to enjoy? Turn the Crest Room into a gaming room? Turn Mitchell Green Lounge into a gymnastics room?
The possibilities are endless
Best idea* will win $$$ to host an event in McCullough and a years’ worth of bragging rights.
Cocoa and MiddCakes will be provided.
RSVP at go/RetakeMcCullough
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org!
*We can’t promise that these ideas will become reality, but you’ll win the money and bragging rights regardless.
