The Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center (AASTEC) is committed to working with American Indian/Alaska Native undergraduate and graduate students to provide them with exposure to applied public health practice within a tribal-serving organization. An internship with AASTEC is an excellent opportunity to gain hands-on experience and skills in the areas of data collection and management, survey design, program evaluation, community-based health research, developing health education/communication materials and much more!

Interns will work directly with AASTEC program staff including our epidemiologists and evaluation specialists.

This is an 8-12 week paid internship for up to 30 hours per week in the summer and 12-20 hours per week during the school year.

NOTE: If you are looking to fulfill a practicum, field experience, or capstone course requirement, please contact Dr. Dixit (adixit@aaihb.org) before proceeding with the application.
