Available Internships/Practicum


Any internship/practicum is a learning experience with no expectation of compensation, is not an offer of temporary or permanent employment, and is conducted without any entitlement to a paid job at the conclusion of the internship. Public health programs at various institutions may have differing procedures for internship placement. Students should follow instructions and procedures established by their respective programs for finalizing their public health internship experience.
