Training and Job Opportunities at the PRCHN
PRCHN intern collage 

The PRCHN is committed to providing training & mentoring opportunities to help train the next generation of public health researchers and increase research capacity in our community.   

*updated 4/24/2020* 
As of 4/24, The 2020 PRCHN Internship Program is being put on hold. For the safety of the students, the pause will likely continue through summer and possibly reopen in the fall. The few remote positions we were able to offer have already been filled before the hold took place. This means summer applicants should seriously consider pursuing other opportunities or apply for our fall internship instead. We understand this is not an ideal situation and can create inconveniences, but we hope to start our program back up once it is deemed safe by Case Western and the PRCHN. Please contact Madeline Castele, [email protected], for any questions or concerns regarding your application. Thank you.
The PRCHN offers many diverse internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students and accepts applications throughout the year.
The PRCHN offers three internship sessions during the year: Fall, Spring and Summer. The start and end dates of the internships are flexible within the session timelines (see table below) to accommodate individual schedules. The internship begins with a mandatory half-day orientation and introduction to the PRCHN and to the specific project to which the intern is assigned. This is also a great opportunity to meet your fellow interns and the staff at the center.
