The Centre is committed to addressing health care’s “innovation adoption deficit” and the lack of highly trained leaders and change agents who understand that innovation improves productivity and who have the specialized skills necessary to drive and sustain change in both the private sector and in our publicly funded health care institutions. As part of this commitment, the Centre hires undergraduate and graduate students to help support the Centre's ongoing research activities throughout the summer. As part of this program students are provided professional development opportunities. Last year students attended the Achieving Excellence Together Conference in Toronto, engaged in Lunch and Learns with leaders in health care and attended workshops on personal branding and mental wellness.
This program is a fantastic opportunity for highly motivated individuals with a keen interest in the dynamic health care industry. Application are now open.

Jovana Sibalija, 2017 Summer Analyst, Phd Student, Health and Ageing, Western University
"Working at the Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation deepened my understanding of our healthcare system and allowed me to apply my knowledge to current health system issues. As well, I learned invaluable information about the business side of healthcare through the Centre’s diverse projects and opportunities to chat with members of the Advisory Council. The work environment was very positive and supportive. Summer analysts set goals at the beginning of the summer and the staff helped ensure students were meeting their goals and getting what they needed out of the program. I would highly recommend the Summer Research Analyst Program to students interested in healthcare and business."
Russell MacMillan, 2017 Summer Analyst, recent BSc, HBA graduate
"My summer at the Ivey Center for Health Innovation was a wonderful experience due to the Center’s dual objective of providing challenging healthcare business cases to solve and challenging employees to continuously improve on their professional skills. My coworkers were incredibly supportive making for an environment conducive to maximizing my personal learning and confidence. I would definitely recommend the summer analyst position for anyone interested in expanding their professional development and/or working in healthcare business in the future."
