Bureau of Epidemiology and Population Health: Internships and Fellowships

The Bureau of Epidemiology and Population Health is an active participant in a variety of internship opportunities.  Bureau staff members believe that hosting internships is an important tool to promote and expand epidemiologic activities, as well as a means to contribute to public health workforce development.  To that end, staff endeavor to assist student applicants whenever possible, from arranging daylong meetings/tours for student groups, to hosting students for clinical rotations ranging from weeks to months, or to crafting summer-long student projects.
Students from any college or university in the state are welcome to contact us.  We have found that those best matched to our program areas are graduate or professional students pursuing advanced degrees.

The Bureau regularly participates with the Epidemiologic Intelligence Service (EIS) Officers' program from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Applied Epidemiology Fellowship program from the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists, and the Preventive Medicine Residency program from the University of Michigan.  Topic areas include infectious diseases, environmental health, maternal and child health, genomics, and chronic disease.
