Student Engagement

The PHC hosts undergraduate and graduate students during the academic year and over the summer.  Put your public health skills into practice on real-world projects, and work with us or with our  community partners across DE to improve health and increase equity!

We have a rolling application for general interest in working with PHC in both paid and volunteer student fellowships and opportunities, as well as specific opportunities that we advertise when available.

PHC Current Opportunities:

There are two 2023 Summer Paid Opportunities with Westside Family Healthcare at this time.

Please check back frequently, as more opportunities may develop, or submit a general application through the link below.

Students who are PHC Fellows, Interns, or Student Workers, as well as students working on PHC Strategic Initiatives (ex. HEALTH for All, Delaware SHIP, Healthy Communities DE, Community Well-being) or similar PHC partnerships (ex.
