All second-year MPH students are required to do a 10-12 week full-time summer internship. The MPH internship enables students to participate in real world public health projects and research through local, national and international placements. It is also an opportunity for students to clarify their professional goals and to evaluate their career options. Both the Office of Career Services and the Office of Public Health Practice each play roles in assisting students with the summer internship process. The Office of Career Services helps students with the search process, funding and how the experience can fit into their professional plans. The Office of Public Health Practice evaluates and assists students in fulfilling both the internship and practice requirements.
