About Our Internships

With support from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Western Region Public Health Training Center (WRPHTC) will support 30 public health internships each year. These internships need to include one of the following objectives: (1) support a rural public health agency, (2) address childhood obesity, (3) prevention, management or treatment of opioid addiction, and (4) prevention, management or treatment of mental health conditions. Internships need to meet the requirements for the Council on Education for Public Health Applied Practice Experience and be conducted at public health organizations, including health departments, hospitals, community-based health care facilities, and non-traditional health care settings.
