Our internship initiative extends a warm invitation to students, recent graduates, and professionals eager to enhance and apply their expertise in the field of public health.
- Learning: Interns acquire and apply public health knowledge and skills to meet university requirements (e.g., applied learning, practicum, externship, internships).
- Academic: Fulfill service-learning hours for class or graduation prerequisites (e.g., class service project or pro bono work for graduation).
- Experience: Obtain valuable experience, mentoring, and networking opportunities for future graduate programs, medical school, nursing programs, or during school breaks. Discover if public health is your calling.
- Share Your Talent: If you have artistic skills (graphic design, photography, video), contribute to HIPHI during meetings, events, conferences, or short-term projects to support communities.
