NHMA Internship Program

The National Hispanic Medical Association (NHMA) is a nonprofit organization that represents more than 50,000 members across the country. We are the leader in Hispanic Health issues that works with a diverse array of partners ranging from federal and private entities. NHMA has a national presence and supports health care workers across the country to eliminate health disparities in the Latino population. Interns are hired year-round and we are flexible with the internship schedule. However, the internship workdays will require the intern to work in the Washington, DC office.
