The Debbie and Jerry Ivy College of Business at Iowa State University and Mary Greeley Medical Center have partnered to help give students studying health care management access to paid internships in the field. The two organizations signed a memorandum of understanding, effective March 1, according to a press release.

“While we don’t have a medical school or hospital on campus, we are collaborating with an outstanding hospital with a nationwide reputation for providing high-quality, cost-effective health care services located within a seven-minute drive from campus,” said Natallia Gray, an associate teaching professor of management who is also the health care management program director.

As part of the new agreement, Mary Greeley will offer paid internship opportunities awarded on a competitive basis that align with the business college’s health care management curriculum.

“We are thrilled to strategically identify business needs in our organization where internships make sense. Additionally, we know the importance of a quality internship experience and how that impacts both our organization and career choices for students,” Tammy Stegman, workforce engagement program manager at Mary Greeley, said in the release.

Chloe Jaeger is a junior in health care management at Iowa State following in the footsteps of her family of health care professionals.

“Because of them, I’ve always had a passion for the health care industry, but I knew I didn’t want to be a doctor or nurse,” Jaeger said in the release.

She currently has an internship with Story County Public Health, which is part of Mary Greeley, and has a second internship planned at the hospital this summer focusing on quality management.
