What's Going On

Upcoming Events and News of Interest to Health Science Students


The California Department of Health (CDPH) is offering a number of paid internships (as well as some volunteer unpaid). The program information is here: https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/OQPA/Pages/Internship-Program.aspx. Please read the FAQ section.

To apply: send a resume and cover letter to CDPHInternships@cdph.ca.gov
*If there is an individual that is specifically interested in an unpaid, volunteer opportunity, please note that in your cover letter and email.

If CDPH is unable to place a student in a paid internship, they will follow up and ask if the student is interested in unpaid volunteer opportunities instead. If the candidate expresses interest in volunteer opportunities, they will find a volunteer placement for the student.

Volunteer placement is dependent on availability of intern supervisors, but CDPH haa a good amount of interested intern supervisors for Spring 2021. If there are more interested volunteers than host supervisors, they will consider those volunteers for the summer as well.
