This table provides some examples of interesting rotations (sometimes also called placements) that are open to local Public Health residents in their member countries. It was compiled with suggestions from National Commissions and does not represent open internship positions. However, we can facilitate a first contact with the respective National Commission to explore the availability to host you for an internship. Please email EuroNet’s internships lead – – for more information.

Please note that these internship opportunities are managed and decided directly by the host organisations and EuroNet has no influence over this.
