The Federal Service Internship
The Federal Service Internship (FSI), is a one-week service-learning experience that provides advanced dental education students and residents with the opportunity to visit federal agencies in the Washington DC area. Participants will engage with leaders to learn the roles and operations of each federal agency. Site visits include the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), National Institutes of Health/National Institutes of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIH/NIDCR), Indian Health Service (IHS), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
This experience is fast-paced, injecting national and federal career development opportunities in a short time frame. Participants are taken to organizations for site visits, presentations, activities, and Q&A engagement sessions. You can view example agendas from our 2019 experience below.
