About ICH’s internship program
ICH typically offers internship opportunities beginning in January, June, and September. Our internships provide experiential learning in participatory assessment, evaluation, and research. We provide internships to students and recent graduates in a wide array of disciplines including public health, medicine, healthcare law/policy, and healthcare management. Interns work directly with ICH staff members and often have opportunities to interact with clients and attend community meetings.
We currently do not have any open internship opportunities. Intern positions will be posted here when available.
What our interns say about their experiences at ICH:
“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.”
