VAW Global Health Alliances develops community health systems while providing interns the opportunity to work alongside experienced local healthcare professionals. VAW Global Interns work closely with community partners to implement medical, dental, and veterinary clinics and global health projects across low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).


This is an intensive internship โ€” open anyone who is serious about their relevant area of study and has an interest in public health on a global level. In partnership with local communities and healthcare professionals, interns have the opportunity to gain skills in public health while supporting healthcare systems around the world. Interns are required to attend trainings and workshops prior to their trip, so that they are well prepared upon arrival in country.
