Beyond the Classroom
Students may intern at a number of settings, including volunteer agencies, hospitals, local health departments, fitness and wellness centers, and community health clinics. Public health students have interned at:
- Vanderburgh County Health Department
- American Red Cross
- St. Vincent Hospital
- Tri-State Food Bank
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Each year, public health students participate at the National Undergraduate Public Health Scholar Bowl in St. Louis, MO. The competition consists of a trivia challenge and case study presentation. This is a great opportunity for students to showcase their public health knowledge and to network with potential graduate schools.
