Internships

Licking County Health Department volunteer opportunities, internships and preceptorships are designed to offer high school, undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain experience within a public health agency while, in some situations, offering students the opportunity to obtain academic credit. Students may perform work directly related to their academic field, or in an area of study in which they have an interest.

Students who participate will gain:

  • Hands-on training
  • Exposure to working professionals in their area of interest
  • Opportunity to explore new careers while building on their academic studies
