The Bayer Hemophilia Leadership Development Program was created by Bayer — with hemophilia advocacy organizations, healthcare professional thought leaders, and other community advocates — to help prepare future leaders in the hemophilia community.
For years, Bayer has offered motivated, young individuals who are touched by hemophilia a paid internship at Bayer’s U.S. headquarters in New Jersey, where they spend six weeks participating in activities that aim to help them grow personally and professionally. Prospective interns must have a strong interest in and commitment to becoming future leaders in the hemophilia community. The goal of the program is to empower selected interns to build foundational leadership skills while also deepening their connection to the local hemophilia community. The internship includes a variety of hands-on modules designed to sharpen leadership skills and gives interns an opportunity to apply these skills in a real-world corporate setting through a variety of independent projects.
Selected interns will:
- Engage in leadership training and hands-on business projects
- Learn how to support the hemophilia community as a potential future leader
- Participate in formal training on communication skills, effective problem solving and leadership
- Spend time with mentors within Bayer to gain insights into the inner workings of the various corporate departments — emphasizing the importance of collaboration
- Collaborate with local hemophilia organizations and learn about efforts to support the hemophilia community and partnerships with business professionals
- Be responsible for developing a project that will be presented to Bayer senior management
The program also includes a meeting with healthcare public policy professionals in Washington D.C., a community advocacy-focused visit to New York City, and activities with Bayer’s partners.
This is a six week, paid internship program beginning in June. All housing, travel and related activities will be organized and underwritten by Bayer.
Interns are selected based on the application form and interview process. Selected interns are required to fill out pre-employment documentation, as well as pass a drug-screening test and background check.
