Looking for an internship in Spain

About Candidate

I’m a 20-year-old student from Aalst, Belgium, studying Health Care Management. I’m passionate about learning and always eager for new challenges, which is why I’m excited about the prospect of an international internship. I thrive on meeting new people and discovering new things. In preparation for my time abroad, I’m taking a Spanish course to better navigate my way through new experiences.

What I’m Looking For

I’m interested in doing my internship in Spain, preferably somewhere along the coast. My internship has been approved and is set to start at the end of February or the beginning of March.

My University’s Requirements

My university’s Health Care Management program focuses on four core objectives, which are evaluated at the end of the internship:

  • Multilingual Communicator: Proficiency in Dutch, French, and English. However, not every language is mandatory.
  • Information Manager: Proficiency in Excel, Word, document management, and data collection and reporting to the direct supervisor.
  • Organizer: Skills in organizational management, time management, setting priorities, and familiarity with planning systems.
  • Co-Manager: Understanding of procedures and company context, teamwork, quality work, long-term thinking, diversity management, problem-solving, and idea generation.
  • The internship should last for a minimum of 60 days. Students typically have a 4-day workweek for internships, both domestically and internationally.

Internship Preferences

Having previously interned in a hospital and a health insurance company, I am particularly interested in the pharmaceutical industry and clinical trials. I am also drawn to e-Health sectors that utilize information and communication technology (ICT) to support and enhance healthcare services.

I’m looking forward to applying my academic skills in a real-world setting and am excited about the opportunities that an international internship can offer. Thank you for considering my application!
