Desired skills include:

  • Experience as a direct service health provider or administrator
  • Experience in higher education, such as being a faculty member or professor, in the health professions
  • Experience managing or implementing community-based internships
  • Interest in health profession training strategies, social determinants of health, and connecting students in vocational training programs to employers
  • Comfortable working in ambiguous situations in collaboration with executive agency leadership
  • Commitment to promoting career growth for students from underserved and diverse populations
  • Interest in urban and rural health
  • Strong communication and outreach skills
  • A willingness to fail (and improve!)
  • Experience with federally funded program development, especially in health and human services

This is a remote volunteer position that requires a telephone and personal computer with e-mail capacity and internet service.
