Workforce & Internship Program

Workforce Development

Health Information Technology (IT) as a career is expected to increase dramatically as the sharing of health information expands nationally.

The Interoperability Institute’s (IOIs) Workforce Development goal is to provide early career opportunities to address the talent gap in information technology and healthcare and ensure the supply of talent meets the current and emerging needs of the healthcare industry.

We understand that there are gaps in the Talent Pipeline as a result of students being unaware of emerging health IT opportunities or lack of familiarity with Michigan-based employers.

The Workforce Development program helps establish student and mentor experiences to build the next generation of health IT professionals by providing on-the-job-training and curricula for student interns to learn and grow in healthcare IT.


Join us in creating innovative solutions and be part of the evolution of healthcare exchange through on-the-job-training with industry professionals as your mentors. As a student intern you can:

  • Build career awareness at critical stages along the talent pipeline
  • Establish career pathways through college and university partnerships
  • Provide programs to train individuals at any stage in their health IT career
