Important Things to Consider when Applying for an Internship with the Coastal Health District:
- Your Availability: some programs prefer interns/students for specific times of day or days per week. You should also take into account any jobs or other activities you are involved in. Generally, most of our positions would be based in buildings that are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.with some differences based on program or location.
- Location: The Coastal Health District covers eight counties. When applying for an internship please indicate if you would be available to go to a county other than the one in which you live.
- Your Flexibility: In general, the more open you are to working with various programs, the greater the likelihood we can accommodate your experience.
- Staff Availability: Program staff are often involved in multiple programs and projects at any given time. Please remember that they may or may not be able to take on a student at the time you are ready to begin your field experience.
- Some programs prefer short-term projects (such as undergraduate practicum students), while others prefer undergraduate interns for long-term projects.
- Some staff members will only take MPH students.
- Semester: In general, fall and spring semesters are best–we are less likely to have projects for students during summer semester.
- Staff Changes: Note that your acceptance is usually based on a specific staff member agreeing to be your supervisor. If that staff member leaves or changes positions, we will try to find an alternative but there is a possibility that we may have to postpone or retract our agreement to be your field placement location.
- If you join the Coastal Health District team as an intern, you will be expected to abide by all Coastal Health District policies and procedures.
