Internships


If you would like to add information about internships please contact Carley Mayo at cmayo@tricountyhealth.com

Weber-Morgan Health Department

The Division of Health Promotion at the Weber-Morgan Health Department offers internship positions!  Under the supervision of Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES), our interns obtain hands-on experience in the CHES competencies and gain a better understanding of what it means to be a Health Educator at a Local Health Department.   Our internships provide the unique opportunity to work with every program we offer, rather than just one health education program – an important edge when entering the job market!  Position is paid through a stipend upon completion of internship hours. Mileage reimbursement is also provided.

Applications are accepted any time throughout the year with positions available for Spring, Summer and Fall semesters.  Applicants must be pursuing a degree in Health Education or a closely related field, must have completed or be enrolled in a program planning course, must be eligible to begin earning internship credits and complete a minimum of 200 hours.  Must also be dependable, computer literate, organized, self-motivated, tobacco-free and have reliable transportation.
