Deadline: March 14, 2014
This is the 11th year of this very successful summer internship program that is designed as a field-based learning experience in occupational safety and health. Students work with labor unions or community-based organizations on a variety of issues of major importance to workers and the occupational safety and health professionals.
Students can apply to work in any of the following locations, regardless of where they now reside: San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, San Diego, St Paul, Denver, Marshfield (WI), Chicago, Boston and New York City. Supervision and mentorship is provided by senior occupational health researchers from these sites.
The program is open both to undergraduates (3rd and 4th year) and graduate students (public health, medical, nursing, etc) with an interest in occupational health or related fields. A stipend is provided for the 9-week experience ($4,000 for undergraduates, $5,200 for graduates (no housing allowance but we can assist those relocating for the summer to find temporary housing.)
More information about the program (including our new video), and how to apply, can be obtained at the OHIP website at http://aoec.org/ohip/.
