The Southern Plains Tribal Health Board’s (SPTHB) Oklahoma Area Tribal Epidemiology Center’s Internship Program will allow academic students to receive the knowledge and experience beyond what would be learned during typical academic studies by providing opportunities to learn and grow through internships. The lessons learned throughout this program will help prepare the student to work in a professional environment and enhance his/her personal growth. The over-all goal of providing the opportunity for an internship is to attract and retain American Indian students or students with an interest with working with American Indians in the American Indian public health sector.

Upcoming Internship opportunities with the SPTHB will be posted on this Internships page, which may be on a rolling-basis. Students wishing to serve an internship with the organization must apply by downloading the application and submitting it along with other supporting documents.
