Apply for the Occupational Health Internship Program (OHIP). This is the 14th year of our very successful summer program that is designed as a field-based learning experience in occupational safety and health. Teams of two students are placed with labor unions or community-based organizations to work on projects that investigate job-related health and safety issues among workers, often of new immigrant groups, employed in an under-served or a high hazard job.

More information about the program, and how to apply, can be obtained at the OHIP website at

Students can apply to work in any of the following cities/locations, regardless of where they now reside: San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, New Orleans, New York City, Seattle, Puerto Rico, and Idaho Falls. Supervision and mentorship are provided by senior occupational health researchers and their host organizations.

The deadline to apply is February 16, 2018.

The program is open both to undergraduates (3rd and 4th year) and graduate students with an interest in occupational health or related fields. A stipend is provided for the 9-week experience ($4000 for undergraduates, $5200 for graduates). Housing allowance is not provided, but we can assist those relocating for the summer to find temporary housing.
