Applications accepted on an ongoing basis

The HRSA Public Health Student Intern Program provides a one-semester internship within one of the Health Resources and Services Administration's bureaus or offices for students enrolled in a public health program.

Interns will have frequent contact with HRSA's public health experts in one of a wide-range of disciplines including rural health policy, HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, and healthcare systems. Specific projects will depend on initiatives within the office in which an intern is placed.

Interns will:

  • Support the management of grants and programs at HRSA
  • Participate in training and development activities
  • Plan and coordinate meetings of public health experts/practitioners
  • Learn about HRSA's program analysis and evaluation methodologies
  • Shadow and conduct informational interviews with key HRSA staff
  • Apply skills to goal-based projects in the range of competency areas specified by the student's school's curriculum

Interns must be current graduate or undergraduate students in good standing at schools of public health and public health programs in the United States.
