The Milwaukee Community Health Internship Program (known as “Milwaukee CHIP”) started in the summer of 2000 as a partnership between Milwaukee AHEC, the UW Medical School Clinical Campus at Sinai-Samaritan Medical Center, and city and county public health agencies in Milwaukee. Students are placed with mentors in local health departments, community service agencies, and community health centers. They work on projects that vary widely to suit interns’ interests and abilities and local needs. They participate in weekly seminars which provide them with an orientation to community & public health and an opportunity to share their progress. Students receive a modest stipend to help defray their living costs. Students will have an opportunity to present their projects at the conclusion of the internship. Applications for the Milwaukee program are available in December and due in February. Students interested in projects in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Kenosha counties are encouraged to apply to the Milwaukee CHIP program.
