What We Do // Internships

EuroNet MRPH stands for the European Network of Medical Residents in Public Health, and constitutes a network of European National associations of Public Health training programmes, including medical and non-medical residents. It is a non-profit, international, independent and non-governmental association. One of its main aims is to facilitate exchanges and internship opportunities for medical residents in Public Health in all the countries taking part of the association.

 

Practice of public health is dictated by major and often very sudden changes of social, environmental and cultural milieu. For young professionals making their way in such a dynamic profession it is of vital importance to learn from the best and develop their skills at the most progressive and established public health institutions across Europe. Competent workforce is after all a necessary condition for a successful public health practice. Potentials for career, academic as well as personal development that such esteemed public health institutions hold can be best utilised by visiting those institutions and learning under supervision of experienced public health professionals.

Acknowledging this premise, EuroNet MRPH is setting the Internship Programme high on its priority list. Advocacy and coordination of public health resident’s internship opportunities has nonetheless been a focal point of EuroNet MRPH endeavours for many years.

If you happen to work for a university, national or international institution active in the field of public health or for a NGO that has internship placements available to medical residents in public health, please send an e-mail to internships@euronetmrph.org.
