Academic Partnerships and Internships

Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) internships provide meaningful work experiences for students that help BPHC programs meet their goals. 

BPHC Internships are available to students associated with an academic, certificate or licensure program.


BPHC offers a variety of internships in many programs. The scope of each internship is based on the needs of the program and the abilities and interests of the intern. Students may propose a project they are interested in that meets their academic requirements. Placements are available throughout the year.

Qualifying internships may be:

  • Undergraduate or graduate college student placements, including capstones or research projects
  • Internships or practicums associated with non-degree licensure programs such as Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor
