The mission of the Student Internship Program is to
build the future of the public health workforce through education, training and
hands-on experiences. Interns will be immersed in the exciting career
opportunities the Kentucky Department for Public Health has to offer.
Enrichment opportunities such as participating in meetings, community events,
meeting leadership and touring state facilities will be available throughout
the internship experience. The Student Internship Program is open to students
of all levels, with various goals and is flexible to meet your needs. Select a
route that best fits your interests.
