The Compliance Department reinforces Brooks Rehabilitation's ongoing commitment to the highest ethical, legal, and professional standards by providing direction, education, oversight, and guidance to all Brooks employees. Our Corporate Compliance Program is committed to championing a culture of ethics, integrity, and compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and Brooks policies.
This Policy Internship will give a student an opportunity to learn about effective policy management practices. Brooks utilizes an electronic platform called Compliance 360 to centrally store its 1,500 policies. Today, a search for “infection control” policies in the system yields roughly 157 results, with disparate policies each for our skilled nursing facilities, rehab hospital, and Human Resources in lieu of one universal policy on this topic adopted by all. As Brooks expands as a system, standardized policies and procedures integrated across the enterprise are increasingly important and set standards for conduct that result in improved performance and enhanced corporate culture.
The intern can expect to work on a substantive organization-wide initiative to standardize policies across the enterprise. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, providing analysis to identify areas of overlap, coordinating with management to standardize department policies, and researching and providing recommendations on a process to effectively manage the addition of new policies moving forward. The intern will also develop communication and professional skills, become familiar with the vast number of policies that govern Brooks Rehabilitation, and benefit from the personal attention of a mentor. By the end of the internship, the student will have learned the skills and knowledge necessary to allow her or him to manage a significant health care project. Successful candidates should have an interest in governance, compliance, or risk management; be a self-starter, team oriented, and well organized.
