Project Healthcare

Our most popular program, Project Healthcare, is offered in both Manhattan (NYC Health+Hospitals/Bellevue) and Brooklyn (NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn). As a member of Project Healthcare, volunteers are given the unique opportunity to play an active role in patient care in one of NYU’s active Emergency Departments. Founded in 1981, by one of the fathers of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Lewis Goldfrank, our program has seen 92.1% of its alumni achieve careers in medicine, with many past participants gaining acceptance into some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the nation (including our own, #2 in the nation), citing their experiences in Project Healthcare as pivotal to fostering the motivation and dedication that helped them to achieve success. For our volunteers, often the individual patient interactions are most impactful. Our volunteers appreciate the stories, the experiences and the trust that patients share with them.

Our 9-week or 10-week Project Healthcare program is one of the most competitive and attractive programs in the nation offered to a collegiate population.


Founded by Howard A. Rusk, MD, a father of Rehabilitation Medicine, and sponsored by the Wallace Foundation, the Health Career Opportunity Program has graduated approximately 5,700 volunteers throughout its 50-year history. Offered in partnership with Rusk Rehabilitation, our program is unique because it offers volunteers the opportunity to explore the field of Emergency Medicine, Emergency Medicine-related rotations and finely curated program activities.

Research Associates

The Research Associate Internship grants students an opportunity to experience and observe multiple aspects of clinical research. Research Associates develop basic research skills and become an integral part of research projects and grants. Research Associates may be taught how to collect and enter data and maintain databases, participate in laboratory meetings, and gain Principal Investigator mentorship and shadowing experiences. Research Associates also become oriented to the Institutional Review Board and other human subjects courses. The current Research Associate study seeking candidates is the Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment, Opioid Education, and Naloxone Distribution (SBIRT-OEND) study.


The application, for all programs, requires completion of a program application, submission of a personal statement, a current resume, two letters of recommendation and a photograph. Please note that no particular previous experiences are required. Each year, in selecting our volunteers, we look for a diverse group of volunteers with equally diverse interests and experiences. You can apply to all programs! More information on how to apply can be found here, while pertinent program dates are listed below. All interviews will be held virtually.”
