Worcester Academic Health Collaborative

Sunday, June 16, 2024

The Worcester Division of Public Health (WDPH) Academic Health Collaborative (AHC) was originally established in 2014 to create bi-directional relationships between WDPH, the Central Massachusetts Regional Public Health Alliance (CMRPHA) and local colleges and universities. By setting up a system where academia could inform the practice of public health while WDPH informed academic programs, the AHC's primary goal is for WDPH staff to mentor future public health professionals and developing a pipeline for the public health workforce.

The AHC seeks to:

  • Address public health issues.
  • Improve public health education.
  • Retain local public health talent and a pipeline for public health workforce.
  • Produce and disseminate useful knowledge.
  • Increase the capacity of the Department of Health and Humans Services and WDPH.

AHC interns also enhance many partnerships and initiatives that keep our community healthy. View Examples of Previous Interns' Projects.

We are always looking forward to adding new interns to the team at WDPH! Positions may be paid, unpaid or for academic credit. Apply Online to Become an Academic Health Collaborative Intern.
