Building a Supportive Network of Young People
The Hanley Center’s summer UHLI Program has been designed to connect undergraduates with paid experiential summer internship opportunities in health and healthcare sites across Maine.
Through its extensive alumni network, the Hanley Center in partnership with Maine college and universities provides these opportunities as we look to keep young people in Maine. We believe that a combination of leadership development, paid internships, and mentoring is a powerful tool for addressing a portion of Maine’s growing healthcare workforce shortage. Established in 2011, the UHLI program is building a supportive network of young people who share a deep commitment to healthcare and Maine.
“My internship through the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership played such a significant role in my journey to becoming a physician. The experiences I gained served to reinforce the importance of collaboration and advocacy when it comes to the health of a patient. To this day, I remain in contact with my mentors who taught me valuable skills I will use when treating patients in the future.” –Alyssa Thomas, Hanley Intern 2014 and UNE College of Medicine Student
