University Health Services Health Education Program Student Internship Program
Position:Marketing and Data Intern – Spring 2015
The objective of this internship is to allow UMBC students the opportunity to develop their professional skills in an environment that fosters learning, teaching, and ingenuity. The skills and knowledge gained from this experience will help prepare students for future careers and can be applied in various professional settings.
This position is intended to serve as a supportive position to the work being done by the Health Education Program staff and the Peer Health Educators. The office is preparing to launch the 2015 National College Health Assessment (NCHA), a nationwide health inventory survey done through the American College Health Association (ACHA), which is implemented every two years at UMBC. The office also manages an online magazine called Student Health 101, which the intern will be expected to help launch weekly or monthly as well as generate custom content for. The intern will be expected to help manage the office’s social media platforms as well as help generate a stronger, more relevant online presence, which other UMBC students can follow. Lastly, the intern will be expected to help design posters, flyers, and other media to advertise services and events sponsored by the Health Education Program and/or UHS. No prior health knowledge or expertise is required for this position.
The department is still undecided if this will be a paid or unpaid internship. All of our student workers/interns have been paid this far. However, as the State of Maryland budget is being cut, and a hiring freeze goes into effect for UMBC starting Dec. 1, we are unable to guarantee that this position will be paid. If it is unpaid, we can work with the Shriver Center to have a notation added to a student’s transcript for the time dedicated, in addition to the resume/portfolio benefits.
Please submit a resume, 1 sample flyer/poster, and 2-3 professional references to Mickey Irizarry, Health Education Coordinator, by Friday, Dec. 5th. Applications will be reviewed before the holidays and interviews will be scheduled to take place in early January. This person will be expected to start their internship hours the week before the spring semester starts.
The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) of University Health Services (UHS) is now accepting applications!
October is Relationship Violence Awareness Month, and here at UMBC we take relationship violence prevention extremely serious. There is an entire month's worth of great events and programs happening during the month of October and we hope that you will support our campus by being present at some of them.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a warning to avoid nonessential travel to the West African nations of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. This Level 3 travel warning is a reflection of the worsening Ebola outbreak in this region. For more information, please visit the website link provided.
If your student organization or class is hosting an event related to Relationship Violence Awareness sometime during the month of October, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to have your event added to our official Calendar of Events for RVAM, sponsored by University Health Services and The Women's Center. We always welcome collaboration! All event details must be submitted by September 12th.
