College students can develop leadership skills during an eight-week paid internship program sponsored by Bayer HealthCare and held at their campus in Wayne, New Jersey. The internship runs from Monday, June 16-Friday, August 15, 2008. Now in its third year, the Hemophilia Leadership Development Program internship acquaints students with the production and promotion of recombinant factor VIII product. Students tour the manufacturing facility in Berkeley, CA, review state and federal legislative activities, and take classes on leadership, reimbursement and marketing. The internship culminates with an independent project.
Candidates for the internship are current college sophomores, juniors or seniors who have been touched by hemophilia and can demonstrate a commitment to and interest in future leadership in the hemophilia community.
