Public Health Students

CFHI works with public health students to design public health internships and other international experiences for both undergraduate and graduate public health students. CFHI can help you design an internship that meets your program requirements and personal interest, be it them in nutrition, maternal/child health, health systems, vector control, chronic diseases, traditional medicine, or human rights. CFHI programs range from 2-16 weeks, and can be combined to provide a deeper understanding of several Global Health topics. CFHI works in conjunction with Ministries of Health (MOH), public, NGO, and private health systems. Visit CFHI's Global Health Education Programs page to see the breadth of topics and email us at students@cfhi.org if you want to discuss more creating your internship or Global Health educational program.
