An internship is a short-term, hands-on, supervised experience with a professional organization. It differs from a part-time job or volunteer experience in that an internship is intended to increase your knowledge in a specific career field, allow you to develop additional skills and provides quality mentorship.
As a student in the College of Health Solutions, you will be guided and supported in finding the best internship experience for you and your health career aspirations. Our Community Placements team supports students throughout their internship experiences.
The Pre-Health Internship Program (PHIP) works with students interested in a clinical internship experience. The university-wide program develops high-quality activities that give ASU students the practical experience needed to be competitive in their health careers or post-graduate degree programs.
The resume and cover letter is the first contact you will have as an intern. Put your best foot forward; ensure your resume and cover letter are flawless.

International students must contact the International Students and Scholars Center (ISSC) before completing an internship or contacting the internship coordinator. International students on an F-1 visa who want to complete a paid or unpaid internship in the U.S. must use Curricular Practical Training (CPT) or Optional Practical Training (OPT). Applications should be completed six to eight weeks prior to the start date of the internship.
