Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) promotes the efforts of the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-accredited schools and programs of public health to improve the health of every person through education, research and policy. Based upon the belief that “you’re only as healthy as the world you live in,” ASPPH works with stakeholders to develop solutions to the most pressing health concerns and provides access to the ongoing initiatives of the schools of public health.
Successful interns will observe and participate in marketing, research and project management activities that advance the mission of ASPPH and our members. Specific benefits can be found in the project descriptions for each internship assignment.
Internship positions are full-time opportunities for the duration of 10 weeks over the summer. Internship opportunities will be located at ASPPH headquarters in Washington, DC.
