Introducing the Simplex Health Coach Internship Program

Fast-track your career in health and wellness.

We’ve partnered with Simplex Health to give students and graduates like you the opportunity to gain real-world experience working as part of a collaborative care team. This unpaid, remote internship is designed to help you gain valuable work experience and to prepare you for a career as a health coach.

Meet Simplex Health

Simplex Health is a revolutionary healthcare company that focuses on prevention, root cause resolution, and sustainable lifestyle changes. With evidence-based nutrition interventions tailored to each patient's unique biochemistry, Simplex Health is changing the way people approach chronic health conditions.

How the Program Works

What You Will Do

  • As a health coach intern, you'll work as part of a collaborative care team to provide nutrition counseling, education, and guidance to patients.
  • You'll help patients adapt to personalized dietary intervention programs based on their symptoms, health history, and doctor's prescriptions.
  • You'll provide regular updates to doctors about patients' progress and receive feedback from your supervisor to help you grow and develop your skills.

What You Will Gain

  • Relevant work experience that will give you an edge in your career search.
  • Practice hours that are essential for students looking to become board-certified health coaches (the National Board for Health and Wellness Coaching requires 50 logged hours of practice).
  • Opportunities to apply the concepts you'll learn in the Primal Health Coach and Master Coach Certification courses to real-world situations.
  • The chance to work with a renowned healthcare company and to make a real difference in people's lives.

What to Expect

  • The internship program is divided into two tracks:
    • 6-month track for existing Primal Health Coach and Master Coach grads with ability to choose 2 rotations

    • 12-month track for new Primal Health Coach and Master Coach students with the ability to choose 4 rotations

  • The rotations are:

    • Operations: Helping with "Onboarding Coaching Calls" for patients needing Medical Nutrition Therapy and those with Gestational Diabetes. We aim to support patients who might not show up or feel nervous about beginning treatment. This helps coaches prepare for the "Discovery Call."

    • Partnership and Marketing: An opportunity to learn  how to build and maintain business relationships, and help with both partnership development and social media marketing.

    • Corporate Wellness and Out-of-Pocket Programs: Assist Simplex Corporate Wellness grow by giving live talks and supporting new participants in out-of-pocket programs that are new to Simplex Health.

    • Clinical: Shadow dietitians to understand their appointments and how they differ from coaching. Assist with support requests that Registered Dietitians submit for patients needing extra help, including creating meal plans and providing one-on-one coaching through chat or live sessions.

  • You'll be expected to work 8-10 hours per week from home, which is flexible and can be done at a time that suits you.
  • Only 4 candidates will be selected each quarter to participate in the internship program.
  • The application process is divided into 5 steps:
