The spring 2013 cohort is comprised of 16 interns enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs throughout the country and in Puerto Rico. These internships are located at federal, state and local agencies and community-based organizations. Although there were 70 applicants to the program, only 16 were selected to participate in the internship.

During the 12 week program, interns will learn about the ten essentials of public health services, the seven core competencies of health education, health equity, health disparities and social determinants of health. DHPE will also provide interns professional development, training in public health leadership and mentoring. These experiences will be gained through practical experience at the internship site and during weekly webinar sessions.
