“As a medical student hoping to join the digital health ranks, interning at Rock Health gave me invaluable exposure to startups and entrepreneurs working to solve big problems in healthcare. The staff were a bunch of go-getters that were welcoming and an absolute pleasure to work with. Through the connections I built during my time at Rock Health, I found my current job at a VC-backed early-stage startup using the ‘wisdom of crowds’ to solve difficult medical cases online.”

“My Rock Health internship was both challenging and really fun. The projects taught me to think outside the box, work within a lean startup model, and gave me an in-depth view of the rapidly emerging digital health industry. Even better were the people – from the Rock Health mentors and advisors, to the entrepreneurs, and of course, the Rock Health staff – I have never been surrounded by such creative, intelligent, and forward thinking people. Truly a life changing experience.”

“I honestly cannot say enough good things about my experience at Rock Health. If you’re looking to launch a career in digital health, Rock Health is THE place to be. The learning opportunities, supportive community, and exposure to the industry simply cannot be beat. It’s a fast-paced environment, and you’ll work your butt off, but it’s worth every minute. In just 5 months, I gained more industry knowledge and made more valuable connections than I would have in a year (or more) elsewhere. I leave Rock Health more motivated than ever to pursue my dream of becoming a leader in bringing innovation to healthcare.”

“Interning with Rock Health gave me a much greater appreciation for what it means to be a health entrepreneur. It’s an exciting, but often difficult and bumpy road. The intimate and substantial support that I’ve seen Rock Health and its vast network provide for its companies is invaluable for not only turning an idea into a business, but also into a highly successful game-changer in digital health. I hope to be able to tap into such a wealth of support if I ever choose to launch my own health venture.”
