Intern with AMOS


AMOS offers two types of internships: a public health internship and a media internship. All AMOS interns can expect a rewarding and challenging educational experience.

Public Health Internship

  Currently our Public Health Internships are full for 2013. Please check back periodically for opportunities in 2014!   The public health internship is offered as a 4 week or 8 week summer internship or a year-long internship. Public health interns have the opportunity to apply their knowledge, gain international public health work experience, and develop skills in community based participatory research (CBPR) approaches, evaluation and monitoring of projects, maternal and child health interventions, and project development. Current and past public health projects:
  • Evaluation and monitoring of clean water interventions with CBPR approach
  • Determining the prevalence of anemia, soil transmitted helminths, and malnutrition in remote rural communities
  • Evaluation of deworming interventions in rural communities
  • Photovoice and advocacy in rural communities
  • Evaluation and monitoring of community based primary health care programs
Eligibility: AMOS Global Health internships are open to medical students, residents, P.A. and nursing students, public health students, laboratory students, and any other students interested in global health who are willing and ready to serve underserved rural populations in Nicaragua. Our desire is for each intern to have a valuable experience, while also being able to contribute to an ongoing health project at AMOS Health and Hope.   Currently our Public Health Internships are full for 2013. Please check back periodically for opportunities in 2014.  

Media Internship

  Currently our Media Internships are full for 2013. Please check back periodically for opportunities in 2014!   AMOS offers a 6-month to 1 year media internship for people interested in public health reporting, with a commitment to highlighting existing health inequalities for rural populations. The responsibilities of the media intern include documenting the work of the Supervision team and Delegations that visit the rural communities where AMOS works; collecting, editing and organizing the AMOS photo and video libraries; interviewing community members to gain a better understanding of rural issues; writing articles on public health, human interest stories and the impact of AMOS’ work; and helping draft posts for AMOS’ facebook page and website.
