“I was always interested in healthcare, but I wasn’t sure how to best to enter the industry. I always try to position myself with the rising tide, and Centene is positioned to grow for some time. What I valued most about my internship was I was able to work with our Senior Vice President of Health Policy and she understood the vision I had for my career. I had the opportunity to work collaboratively on important projects that spanned multiple departments and was exposed early on to leadership across the company, including executives and plan presidents.” – Adam Loomans – Director of Health Policy and Regulatory Affairs, and a former MBA intern from May 2012-May 2013.
