The application period for the 2013 Bayer Hemophilia Leadership Development Program is now closed. Please check back in December for information and updates on the 2014 program.
Making a change in the world begins by making a difference in the community. The Bayer Hemophilia Leadership Development Program (BHLDP) allows you to be the change you want to see!
The Bayer Hemophilia Leadership Development Program was created by Bayer together 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 with a tie to hemophilia an eight-week, paid internship. 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.
The BHLDP program also includes an opportunity to spend time working at a hemophilia organization where interns can put their leadership and business skills to work for the hemophilia community. The goal of the BHLDP internship is to allow selected interns to build foundational leadership skills, while also deepening their connection to the local hemophilia community.
Bayer is looking for students enrolled full-time in college who are touched by hemophilia and have a strong interest in and commitment to becoming a future leader in the hemophilia community. Interns will travel to Bayer's U.S. headquarters in New Jersey, where they will spend eight-weeks participating in activities that aim to help them grow personally and professionally.
Selected interns will have the opportunity to:
- Participate in formal training on communication skills, effective problem solving, leadership, and compliance
- Spend time working with mentors within Bayer to gain insights into the inner workings of the various corporate departments—emphasizing the importance of collaboration
- Work with hemophilia organizations in the area to learn about the work done to support the hemophilia community and how business professionals can support these efforts
- Engage in hands-on projects that will build on the skills developed during the program
The program will also include a meeting with healthcare public policy professionals in Washington D.C. where interns will see first-hand how effective advocacy relations impacts legislative decisions.
This is an eight-week, paid internship program (June through August 2013). 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 will be required to fill out pre-employment documentation as well as pass a drug-screening test and background check.
Watch as intern alumni share their own experiences and lessons in leadership from previous years.
