The Wisconsin Community Health Internship Program (CHIP) is a summer internship for college students in Wisconsin. The internship provides hands-on opportunities for students and assistance to local health departments.

Programs in each AHEC region across the state vary, but each participant will intern with a local health department to develop a project. Health professions students will receive mentoring and participate in an intensive 8-week summer experience in community health.


Applicants must:

  • Be a Wisconsin resident or student currently attending a college or university in Wisconsin
  • Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Have a GPA of 3.0 or higher

This is a highly competitive program. Most internships are awarded to students with a strong record of academic performance, leadership, and work experience.
