Internships

Thank you for your interest in applying to be an intern with UPHA!  If you are interested in seeing how the board of a professional non-profit works, an UPHA internship might be the right fit for you. UPHA is looking for driven, self-starters who are interested in improving the organization. An ideal candidate will be in their junior or senior year of schooling, or a graduate student. Candidates must be able to work highly independently, with multiple members of the board. We are seeking someone with the following skills and/or an interest in learning: data analysis, data entry, organization, social media, writing, website publishing.

UPHA internships are unpaid, however, all expenses and mileage incurred while working on UPHA–related projects will be reimbursed.  Also, interns will receive a complementary UPHA membership and conference registration for the 2019 Public Health Conference for Utah.

Internships will be approximately six months long. It is anticipated that internships will require approximately 2-4 hours/week.  Schedules and locations are flexible.

UPHA has three different internship opportunities in the following areas:
