Actuarial Intern (Summer 2023)

Milliman’s Mountain Gulf Health Practice operates as one entity across four locations – Denver, Houston, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City. Our summer internship opportunities are spread out across these four locations, or remote.


Our goal is to give interns a broad range of experiences and exposure to the work of consultants in our practice. Actuarial interns perform data analysis using Excel, SAS, and proprietary Milliman programs to assist with consulting for various health insurance work areas, such as: Commercial / ACA, Behavioral Health, Risk Adjustment, Medicaid, Medicare, Dental, and more.

Interns have the opportunity to leverage their classroom knowledge by taking part in consulting activities including everything from coordinating client marketing mailings to sitting in on client calls, updating models to developing analyses for internal projects, reviewing and checking the work of others to assisting with research and product development, and perhaps helping out with the occasional office prank.

Within a project team, consultants, project managers, analysts, and interns coordinate their efforts to deliver client reports and deliverables. Consultants are responsible for building relationships with clients, directing projects, and presenting results. Project managers work directly with analysts by reviewing work, answering questions, and developing client correspondence. Analysts are responsible for the majority of the technical work, which may include analyzing data, completing actuarial calculations, developing and utilizing actuarial models, and implementing software solutions. Interns are given very similar responsibilities compared to full-time analysts, and work alongside all levels of a project team while learning and expanding upon various actuarial concepts and computer programs, such as Microsoft Excel, VBA, and SAS.

Although exam study time, materials, and exam fees are not paid for by Milliman for an actuarial intern, we feel progression with actuarial exams is important, and the day of an exam sitting will be paid time off if applicable.

The goal of our internship program is to be a pipeline for entry level positions within our practice. All interns all eligible to be considered for a full time position based on their performance as intern.
