DHPE manages a robust internship program that places undergraduate and graduate students of minority serving institutions in public health settings. Former interns have been placed in a variety of settings such as state and local health departments, community-based organizations and federal health agencies. The internship program has served as a mechanism to provide public health agencies with well academically prepared interns and to contribute to diversifying the public health workforce. Each year, we have received an abundance of applications from well deserving students but have limited placement sites and host agencies.
DHPE can provide internship services administration and support for your organization. We have a national application pool of students that are eager to gain practical public health work experience.
Please contact our internship manager, Mariela Alarcon-Yohe or 202.659.2230, for more information about DHPE internship program services administration and support for your organization.
