HHPR Internships

The internship experience conducted within the HHPR Department is designed to provide students an opportunity to both observe and participate in actual professional positions within the organization to which they are assigned. The purpose of the internship is to provide each student opportunities to experience the professional work settings that are appropriate for their preparation and career aspirations. The students considering an internship experience will have an upper level classification and have completed the majority of his/her course work in his/her field of study. These students are working on their undergraduate degrees in the areas of Health Sciences, Community Health, or Exercise Physiology and will be doing observations with any additional practical experiences the agency deems feasible. The internship is to create an educational experience that

• increases the student's knowledge base and enhances the perceptions of the career track and organization;
• stimulates inquiry;
• provides a practical experience that can contribute to the student's professional future.

A required "Memorandum of Agreement" must be signed and returned to Baylor University before the student begins work.
