 About the Program

    • The Wisconsin AHEC Community Health Internship Program (CHIP) links undergraduate and graduate student interns with local health departments, tribal health departments, community service agencies, and community health centers throughout Wisconsin to address a variety of public health issues.
    • Projects vary widely to suit interns’ interests and abilities and local needs. Interns gain valuable public health knowledge, skills, and experience while providing host sites with the human resources needed to strengthen and extend their practice in ways that might not otherwise be possible.
    • On-site mentors provide technical support and assistance and facilitate shadowing opportunities to help interns gain an understanding and appreciation of the broad range of public health activities undertaken at the local level. The program would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of these community health professionals.
