Tulane PRC Health Promotion Practicum Program – Winter 2018/Spring 2019

****Deadline Extended to Monday, Oct. 29, 2018!****

The Tulane Prevention Research Center is offering SIX competitive practicum internships that provide students with real-life experience in the field of health promotion working with selected partners of the Tulane PRC. The practicum program is limited to Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine students. Preference is given to graduate-level students who have not yet completed a practicum, but practica have been awarded to exceptional undergraduate students in the past.

The practicum hosts are Broad Community Connections/ReFresh Project, The Cookbook Project, Doc Griggs Foundation, Fit NOLA, Friends of Lafitte Greenway, and SPROUT NOLA.

The deadline to apply is 11:59 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29, 2018, for emailed or faxed applications. All mailed applications must be post-marked by Friday, Oct. 26, 2018. The internship positions may begin as early as the fall semester (November/December) with the bulk of work performed during the spring semester. Exact start and end dates depend on student availability, program timing, and the organization’s specific needs. These internships are not paid.

The interns will be required to work a total of 300 hours for the designated organizations – regardless of the individual students’ departmental requirements. For students in the Global Community Health and Behavioral Sciences Department, this program may fulfill your practicum and project requirements, upon approval from your faculty advisor. All interns will also be required to fulfill any reporting requirements mandated by the school’s practicum manual.
