Nextech Welcomes Summer 2024 Interns Blog Feature

With the new season comes a wave of fresh talent as a new cohort of interns joins the Nextech team. These individuals bring a fresh perspective, innovative ideas, and a passion for learning that will undoubtedly contribute to the success of our organization.

Nextech's internship program, now in its 11th year, continues to uphold its original mission of offering enriching opportunities for the growth and development of the next generation of leaders. By providing hands-on experience, mentorship, and valuable networking opportunities, we aim to help our interns achieve their full potential not only as skilled professionals but also well-rounded people with a passion for making a positive impact in the world.

During the program, interns immerse themselves in the realm of healthcare software through various avenues, collaborating with team members throughout the organization to execute projects that drive the growth of our business and delight our clients. They gain true insight into how our solution benefits specialty care providers, and they seamlessly integrate as vital members of our team. 

We are ecstatic to have them aboard and looking forward to all the amazing work they will continue to do. Get to know each of our six stellar interns below!
