Undergraduate Internships

An In-Depth Learning Opportunity

If you would like to be considered for a Fall 2017 position, please submit both your application and two letters of recommendations to [email protected] by September 15th. Applications are not considered complete until the online application form and two letters of recommendation have been received - unfortunately due to the volume of candidates, incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

BHCHP offers a limited number of unpaid (non-Masters level) internships throughout the year. Individuals can explore a career in medicine, public health or human services at BHCHP while gaining experience and in-depth learning in one or more areas of homeless medicine, including:

  • Walk-in medical clinics
  • Adult respite care
  • Medical office administration
  • Research

Undergraduate internships are most often structured to combine a variety of service experiences and program teams/sites. Whenever possible, we look to provide balance in our internships by assigning individuals to roles that involve both patient contact in clinical settings and work that is administrative in nature. Because these internships are based on volunteer openings it is often difficult to predict availability well in advance.

BHCHP offers interns three to five "brown bag lunch" seminars during the summer, featuring staff speakers from various program teams and sites. These are designed to further enhance each intern’s education around homelessness and health care.

Hours - Weekdays during normal business hours; limited weekend and evening shifts may be available.
Commitment - 12 - 40 hours per week, for a summer, semester or academic year.
Location - Multiple sites in and around Boston.
