The program targets undergraduate students between their junior and senior year, and acts as a preview for full-time employment and opportunities in our leadership development program (EMERGE) upon graduation.

Why Choose the Cardinal Health Summer Internship Program?
Experience: Interns work with Cardinal Health professionals, business partners, customers, and vendors on impactful projects in addition to daily work. To enhance leadership skills, each intern also participates on a planning committee. At the end of the summer, each intern will showcase their work in a presentation to business leaders.
Networking: Interns learn from key business leaders through the "Executive Speaker Series". They also have the opportunity to network with other professionals through formal and informal networking events.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Maintaining and fostering a diverse, inclusive work environment is essential to Cardinal Health. Diversity is more than gender and ethnicity, it is what's different and unique about each of us, and how our differences shape our workplace. We strive to ensure that every employee feels welcomed, supported, and valued as a vital part of our organization. Interns have access to our 7 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). Our ERGs provide employees a place to share interests, passions, and ideas that help us engage more effectively with our global customers and workforce.
Development: Interns participate in a formal one-on-one mentoring program, as well as professional workshops to enhance their business acumen. They are also able to explore full-time career paths throughout their internship experience.
Camaraderie: The internship program offers social, teambuilding, and community service events, as well as tours to help interns build a solid network of peers.
