The Office of Health Services has a competitive internship program; three times a year we offer varying internship positions in our divisions of Health Education and Emergency Preparedness, Inspections, and/or Nursing. Our goal is to provide real world, thought-provoking internships to undergraduate students that will yield quantitative yet achievable results. These opportunities are geared for students in the public health, health administration, planning and public policy, nursing and environmental science majors to deliver administrative services and gain practical real-world experience.
Health Services internships offer students a chance to further develop their skills by participation and ownership in projects and the opportunity to create a network of contacts as well as acquire field-related trainings.
As an intern at Middlesex County Office of Health Services, you will enjoy a variety benefits including:
- Real-world experience in a supervisor-guided yet independent environment
- Networking with public health managers and executives
- Access to FEMA, Medical Reserve Corps, and various other training classes for professional and personal development
Please note: Internship opportunities may not be available in all divisions each trimester. Check the project listings below for additional information.
Submitting an application does not guarantee an intern assignment, and an intern assignment does not guarantee regular full-time employment upon completion of your degree program. An interview panel reviews all applicants and selects all interns. Applicants are screened for communication, interpersonal, and job-related technical skills.
