The WHO is now offering internships to students who want to gain insight into the technical and administrative programs of its organization which operates in countries across the world.
The duration of WHO internships is between six weeks to three months. Exceptionally, internships may be extended up to a maximum of six months depending on the needs of the WHO technical unit and your availability. WHO internships are not paid and all costs of travel and accommodation are the responsibility of the intern candidate.
Students can qualify for the internships if they are enrolled in a degree program in a graduate school (second university degree of higher); have completed at least three years of full time studies at a university or equivalent institution towards a degree; possess a first degree in a public health, medical or social field related to the technical work of the WHO, or a degree in management or administration; and are fluent in the working language of the office of assignment. Applicants must be 20 years of age or older.
More information is available through the WHO website.
