ASPH Headquarters Internship Program
The ASPH/CDC Public Health Internship Program is a collaborative effort between the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). One of the primary purposes of this effort is to "identify new approaches and opportunities for field experience in which graduate candidates and early career professionals with graduate degrees can practice applying skills and knowledge learned in the classroom and field."
The purpose of the Program is to enable schools of public health to assign graduate students in public health to the CDC for on-site training. In addition to possibly fulfilling an internship requirement, students will benefit from: exposure to state-of-the-art information; acquisition of skills and knowledge useful to their careers; and interaction with technical experts in their chosen fields. Upon completion of the Internship, the selected applicant will have made a useful contribution to a project of public health importance that is related to the mission of CDC. In addition, the selected applicant will have carried out scientific work that, if applicable, may be acceptable to the sponsoring academic institution for degree credit as specified at the beginning of the internship.
Internship positions are full-time opportunities for the duration of 10 weeks over the summer. Internship opportunities will be located either at CDC headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, or at CDC geographical locations throughout the United States. Selected interns are required to relocate to the internship location. Relocation costs of any kind will not be covered by ASPH or CDC.
Applicants must be currently enrolled in a Masters or Doctoral program at an ASPH-member graduate school of public health (click here), accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH.) Applicants must be students at the time of application, although may have graduated prior to entering the program. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or hold visas permitting permanent residence in the U.S. (i.e., have a "Green Card") to be eligible for the Internship program.
