International Internships

The Center for Global Health (CGH) works with our partners around the world to create meaningful global health internship opportunities for eligible students.

Each year our first-year Master in Public Health students compete for internship positions with the Environmental Health Center located at Babes Bolya University in Cluj Napoca, Romania.
Most of these internship assignments involve a twelve-week commitment and take place during the summer semester (June - August).
