The World Health Organization (WHO) as the leader in global public health issues is committed to building future leaders in public health. WHO's Internship Programme offers a wide range of opportunities for students to gain insight in the technical and administrative programmes of WHO.

The duration of WHO internships is between six weeks to three months. Exceptionally, internships may be extended up to a maximum of 24 weeks depending on your degree requirements.

Unfortunately, WHO internships are not paid and all costs of travel and accommodation are the responsibility of the intern or the sponsoring institution.

Who are we looking for?
- You are enrolled in a degree programme in a graduate school (second university degree or higher) both at the time of application and during the internship.
- You have completed at least three years of full-time studies at a university or equivalent institution towards the completion of a degree.
- You are at least 20 years old.
- You possess a first degree in a public health, medical or social field related to the technical work of WHO or a degree in a management-related or administrative field.
- You are fluent in the working language of the office of assignment.

Internships are available in a wide variety of areas related to the technical work of WHO.
