Student Internship Program


Interning at a local health department will alter you perspective of public health as a field. The Burlington County Health Department is charged with safeguarding our resident's health in a variety of ways. We work in the field to make sure your food is safe to eat; we work with coalition to help with outreach and access; we work with legislation to help put policies in place to keep everyone healthy.

The Burlington County Health Department partners with various educational institutions to host students for credit-awarded internships. If you are interested in interning at BCHD, please fill out the forms below and submit by the listed dates to allow for processing and interviewing. All internships are offered on a project and space availability basis.
