While working with NYC Health + Hospitals, the attorneys provided me with a variety of assignments. I had the opportunity to sit in on and contribute to meetings with the legal research I compiled on then-developing laws and regulations. The knowledge and skills I acquired from this experience have carried over and continued to benefit me in my subsequent jobs.

In the Health Law Externship program, students work in various public sector field placements that maintain a health law practice. They are supervised by an attorney at the placement site. The work may be advisory, transactional, or policy-oriented, or may require direct client or constituent advocacy.
