Internship Opportunities

Our Internship Program is designed to equip future health professionals with the tools they need to serve marginalized populations and improve their health outcomes.

Interns are assigned to specific departments and/or programs based on their practicum or specific interests.

In addition to their specific assignments, interns have an opportunity to engage with program staff in other areas to learn more about the organization, as well as with management to gain a broader understanding about running a nonprofit health organization.

Interns may leverage their experiences to develop their graduate research papers/theses.

Upon graduation, interns have secured employment nationally at Departments of Health, community-based organizations, and enrolled in medical school.

If you are passionate about public health or medicine, eager to learn, are self-motivated, and seeking opportunities for personal and professional growth, email your resume and cover letter to

“Through my internship with the National Black Leadership on the Commission of Health, I have gained a better understanding of my future career goals and learned which areas of public health are interesting to me. I am excited to continue to grow as a public health practitioner through this organization.”
