BHAN464 Enrollment Information

BHAN464 – Internship in Health Behavior Science

Purpose – The internship is that part of the pre-professional program in which the prospective student spends full time working in a cooperating agency with a supervising health professional. The period of the internship is a vital phase of the student’s professional preparation. It is during this time that the student is able to make practical use of principles, methods, knowledge, and skills that have been developed during their academic career.

Internship Manual – please read thoroughly

Fall 2020 Enrollment

Given the current COVID19 situation, internships will be handled differently.  All HBS students will have alternative assignments available to them in order to satisfy the 9 credit–360 hours (or 6 credit–240 hours) internship requirement.

Specifically, students will be able to complete the internship from the safety and security of their home via a combination of required and optional assignments that will be made available on the CANVAS site.  Each assignment has an “hour” equivalency.  Students will be able to complete available assignments such that their total hour equivalency meets the hours required for the credit hours enrolled.

No student will be permitted to complete their internship at an internship site during fall 2020, unless and only if that student can work remotely–this is from home.  Students seeking to work remotely on behalf of a potential internship must contact Dr. Peterson to discuss and received approval prior to filling out the enrollment request form.

To register for the Fall 2020 BHAN464, Health Behavior Science Internship, for either 9 credits (most students), or 6 credits (Health and Disability Concentration students only) please fill in the following form:
