Host Agencies (health departments, community health centers, and other community agencies), please submit a description of your site, the student projet, and other responsibilities to the AHEC Program office using the following link: 2016 Request for Site Proposals Application
Our matching process works best if we have a complete list of available projects and sites when the student application period opens in mid-December, so students can indicate their preferences. Therefore, we urge you to get your proposal in no later than November 23rd. We will, however, continue to accept site/project proposals through the end of February.
The Wisconsin AHEC Community Health Internship Program links undergraduate and graduate student interns with local health departments, community service agencies and community health centers throughout Wisconsin to address a variety of public health issues. Projects vary widely to suit interns' interests and abilities and local program needs. On-site mentors provide technical support and assistance and facilitate shadowing opportunities to help interns gain an understanding and appreciation of the broad range of public health activities undertaken at the local level. The program would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of these community health professionals.
