Undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students with a concentration and interest in health education, complementary and integrative medicine or community and public health may apply for a full-time internship. You must be actively enrolled at an institution of higher learning in order to be considered for our internship program.
The undergraduate and graduate internships are three-four month programs in the area of complementary and integrative medicine. All internships are uncompensated positions.
Qualified applicants must have an interest in complementary and integrative medicine; be enthusiastic, detail-oriented and thorough; have excellent verbal and written communication skills; and work well independently.
Once an information form is submitted, our committee decides if you are a likely candidate for a current project. You will be contacted to participate in an interview with our management staff, who will discuss with you key areas of interest in our program, as well as internship needs. After the interview, our management staff determines if you are a good fit for one of the areas within the IM Program, and if so, you will receive a response as well as the information needed to begin the formal online application process.
