The Office of Minority Health and Health Disparities (MHHD) internship opportunities support the goal of building the capacity of the public health workforce to advance health equity. MHHD is committed to providing interns with a meaningful learning experience. 

An internship typically runs for three-months with a minimum of 10 hours performed per week. Interns work on projects related to their subject area and assist on other projects as they arise. Recent intern projects have included: grant management for the Minority Outreach and Technical Assistance (MOTA) project, planning for the Health Equity Conference, planning for COVID-19 vaccine distribution, assisting with a grant writing training series, and updating the Office’s data chartbook.

MHHD is partnering with the MDH Public Health Workforce Development Internship Program. Please see their page for more details on available ​internships.
