Applications Open: AIDPH Summer Internship Program
AIDPH is now accepting applications for its Summer 2022 Oral Health Fellowship Program. This is a paid opportunity to work alongside AIDPH in our education, science, research, and advocacy programming. New graduates, advanced education students, and incoming/outgoing DPH residents are encouraged to apply!
This 10-week program is focused on advocacy and research for special populations including veteran oral health, oral health for LGBTQIA+ people, and oral health in rural communities. Participants will have the opportunity to match areas of interest to opportunities within AIDPH's programming.
Fellows will spend approximately five-to-seven hours per week in the program, including weekly virtual meetings, and will be selected on a competitive basis. The application deadline is May 20, 2022, at 5:00 pm PDT. AIDPH plans to start this program on June 13, 2022. We encourage interested residents to apply as soon as possible.
Currently, this experience remains virtual but still highly interactive. Students can expect the following activities during the AIDPH internship.
Students meet one-on-one with established oral health leaders across the nation, including the AIDPH board of directors.
We develop the summer experience based on your interests and career goals. We leverage parternships with national collaborations to design unique experiences.
Students support the cultivation of our Dental Public Health Virtual Resource Center as they look for independent projects to develop as a scientific poster during the internship.
We teach you the ins-and-outs of running a national nonprofit while you support the programming of AIDPH.
We help you develop your curriculum vitae and consider next steps to build experiences along your career trajectory.
Grant writing is an integral part of funding oral health programs. You'll be guided through grant development as you complete an application throughout the summer.
