Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Environmental Health Summer Internship

This is a paid 10-week summer environmental internship for undergraduate students who are passionate about the environment, interested in human health, and curious about how they are linked.

The link between the environment and health is aptly referred to as “environmental health.” Environmental health as a discipline focuses on the interrelationships between people and their environment, promotes human health and well-being, and fosters safe and healthy living. This branch of public health is concerned with all aspects of the natural and built environment that may affect human health.

Interns will be placed in environmental health programs at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Environmental Health and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (NCEH/ATSDR) at CDC in Atlanta, GA (please note, the CDC has multiple locations in Atlanta and CLEH interns will be reporting to CDC’s Chamblee Campus and not CDC’s Roybal campus (the main CDC campus)). Over the course of the summer, interns will be exposed to a broad overview of environmental public health issues at the federal level.
