Internships and Field Placements

Students enrolled in an MPH or MS program are required to complete an internship for credit towards their degree. Because of the close relationship between the School of Public Health and the New York State Department of Health, many students accept internship positions there.

Each semester, students participate in the internship selection process specifically designed for School of Public Health students.  However, students have also found other great opportunities through the School’s relationship with other local organizations or by conducting their own searches through the assistance of various University at Albany and School of Public Health resources.   The possibilities are endless, but have included positions with the Centers for Disease Control, the National Institutes of Health, community health departments, and international agencies.

If you are a current student seeking information about the internship process, visit the Internship and Career Services webpage for more information.
