CHIP Host Sites

About CHIP

Wisconsin AHEC’s CHIP enables college students who have an interest in community health, public health and population health to work full time (40 hours per week) with local health departments, tribal health centers, community health centers and community service organizations throughout Wisconsin for an eight-week summer internship.

2022 CHIP dates:  Monday, June 6 – Friday, July 29, 2022

Interns receive a stipend of $2,600 (subject to income tax) for their full-time commitment throughout the 8-week program.

CHIP host sites are located throughout the state in rural and urban settings. Our goal is to match a student intern to all of our host site projects. Host site projects address a variety of public health issues and vary widely to suit interns’ interests and the needs of local organizations.

Past interns have engaged in program and policy development, monitoring, evaluation, research, and education to name a few. Interns gain valuable public health knowledge, skills, and experience while providing host sites with the capacity needed to strengthen and extend their practice in ways that might not otherwise be possible.

On-site mentors provide technical support and assistance and will facilitate shadowing opportunities to help interns gain an understanding and an 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.
