Hi David, Phyllis,
Please post this at SafeTREC and to any other lists you think appropriate. It is a terrific paid internship.

Fyi. Sorry about cross-postings (well, sort of).
The Occupational Health Internship Program (OHIP) is a NIOSH-funded training program designed to bring new people into the occupational health and safety field. This successful summer program, now in its 10th year, is designed as a field-based learning experience. Students work with labor unions or community-based organizations on a variety of important health and safety issues.
Do you know a student who is interested in learning more about occupational health -- a student currently in the public health, nursing or medicine track or an energetic and curious student interested in economic and social disparities or environmental issues? If so, please forward this announcement and the attached recruitment flyer to any prospective candidates.
Students can apply to work in any of the following cities, regardless of where they now reside: Los Angeles, the Bay Area, San Diego, Seattle, Chicago, Boston and New York City. Supervision and mentorship is provided by senior occupational health researchers.
The deadline to apply is March 18, 2013.
The program is open both to undergraduates (3rd and 4th year) and graduate students. A stipend is provided for the 9-week experience ($4,000 for undergraduates, $5,200 for graduates (no housing allowance but we can assist those relocating for the summer to find temporary housing)).
More information about the program, and how to apply, can be obtained at the OHIP website at www.aoec.org/ohip.
Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org), Administrative Program Coordinator Ingrid Denis (email@example.com), or the National Program Coordinator Sarah Jacobs (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
This is a free and open discussion forum for public health professionals and others interested in Occupational Health and Safety. The OHS Listserve is housed at Migrant Clinicians Network and moderated by the OHS Section of the American Public Health Association.
