Our internships in Public Health can help you cross two accomplishments off your list. Firstly, you get relevant clinical experience to support your education and career in the United States. Secondly, you give back by bringing crucial healthcare services to developing communities.
This is how to get experience in Public Health with Projects Abroad:
- Work in clinics, community centers, or schools (we also do home visits in some countries)
- Learn essential medical skills, like how to measure blood pressure and sugar levels
- Use your clinical skills to conduct basic health checks
- Raise awareness of disease and other health issues during educational campaigns, like how to prevent the spread of Dengue Fever in the Philippines
- Get a deeper insight into healthcare practices and challenges in developing countries
All our global health opportunities are safe, supportive, and ethical. Our staff are there when you need them, and all of your work is supervised by a healthcare professional. Best of all, the work you do has long-term benefits for the people you treat! For example, if you do a blood sugar test that leads to a diabetes diagnosis, we refer the patient for further treatment and monitor their progress at future outreaches.
