The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) is starting its second term (Spring 2023) for the newly implemented MDH Public Health Workforce Development Internship Program. This term will begin on February 15, 2023. The purpose of the program is to form partnerships with academic institutions by creating student internship opportunities, and building a graduation-to-workforce pipeline that will bolster the public health workforce.
The spring session will be 12 weeks and run from February 15, 2023 to May 9, 2023. A second term may be available from March 1, 2023 to May 23, 2023. This program is open to students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program that are in good academic standing who have a special interest in public health. We are offering remote, hybrid, and in-person opportunities. Students can work a minimum of 120 hours and a maximum of 240 hours during the 12-week period, which will average to approximately 15 hours/week. Program areas include: Health Policy, Epidemiology, Infectious Diseases, Biostatistics, Health Informatics, Preparedness, Public Health Accreditation, Community Health, Environmental Health, Occupational Health, Healthcare Administrations, Health Education, Public Health Communications, Behavioral Sciences, Clinical Laboratory Sciences, and Other.
On the supplemental questionnaire, please select the subject areas that you are interested in; whether you are interested in in-person, remote, or hybrid opportunities; and select the county or counties in which you are interested in. Your application will be reviewed by managers of programs that fall into these criteria.
Students may be considered for more than one opening but they will only be selected for one position. Also, students may only accept one opening. Students must submit a copy of their unofficial transcripts with their application. All student applications must be submitted by February 3, 2023, at 11:59:00 PM.
