ICH’s educational mission is to provide experiential learning opportunities in community-based research and evaluation. The ICH Internship Program provides internships to graduate and undergraduate students interested in a wide array of fields including public health, medicine, healthcare law/policy, and healthcare management. We train students on principles of community-based participatory research and provide opportunities for these principles to be applied in local communities. Students work directly with ICH staff members, who represent a broad range of disciplines, including medicine, public health, epidemiology, nutrition, anthropology, social work, and psychology.
What our interns say about their experiences at ICH:
“I really appreciated learning about the community-based participatory research model. I came in with skills, and at ICH learned more inclusive ways to use them.
“This has been one of the best internship experiences I have had. The key to a great experience is great mentors, which I was lucky to have.”
“I really enjoyed my evaluation classes in grad school and this internship was really my first “hands on” evaluation experience. It helped me narrow my job search in general because I knew that I was very interested in public health evaluation.”
“Interacting with community partners was valuable as one of the tenets of community-based participatory approaches is to engage them in research/evaluation process. This is something that cannot be experienced in a classroom setting.”
“It was a great experience to learn from the employees at ICH and I really appreciate the fact that mentorship and teaching plays such a large part of the mission.”
