I worked at UnitedHealth Group – Optum as a Product Management Intern. Specifically, I worked in the Payment Integrity division, which focuses on developing a transparent payment relationship between payer and provider. My project had to do with the Provider Education program, focusing on how to better educate providers in terms of billing practices. It wasn’t a typical Industrial Engineering internship, but it was a great healthcare learning experience.
I took a bit of a more nontraditional route for my internship and post-graduation career and decided to try my luck in finance. For my sophomore Summer, I interned at a hedge fund, for my junior Summer I worked at an investment bank and after graduation, I will be returning to that investment bank.
