WHO Internship Opportunities

Post by Admin on Thu 28 Jan 2010, 17:36

As the acknowledged leader in global public health issues, WHO is committed to building future leaders in public health. WHO's Internship Programme provides a wide range of opportunities for students to gain insight into the work of WHO. Every year a limited number of places for internships are available.

To take part in the programme, we look for the following minimum eligibility criteria:

* Applicants must be enrolled in a degree programme in a graduate school (second university degree or higher) both at the time of application and during the internship
* Applicants pursuing their studies in countries where higher education is not divided into undergraduate and graduate stages must have completed at least three years of full-time studies at a university or equivalent institution towards the completion of a degree.
* A minimum of 20 years of age
* Possess a first degree in a public health, medical or social field related to the technical work of WHO.
* Fluent in the working language of the office of assignment

Internship Application Dates
Summer (May to October)
To be considered for a Summer internship, applications are accepted between December 1 - January 31 each year.

Winter (November to April)
To be considered for a Winter internship, applications are accepted between August 1 - September 30 each year.
