Best Internships for Community Health Majors

Community health is an important field of study within the medical and clinical sciences that focuses on protecting, maintaining, and improving the health status of population groups and communities. The WHO defines community health as social, environmental, and economic resources to sustain emotional and physical needs among people in ways that advance their aspirations and satisfy their needs in their unique environment. 

Community health interns are involved in fieldwork. They are hired in community health centers to assist there. They are mentored by licensed doctors in the community and other staff of the health centers. Community health interns need to be passionate about what they do. This role is not for the weak of heart.

If you are interested, you better do your experiments and research what is expected of you as an intern. It would be the best experience to be mentored by established doctors, too.
