Internship Opportunities

Working at Church Health is about service to our community.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

COVID-19 vaccine is a condition of employment for all employees of Church Health, including those who do not have direct patient contact; this policy extends to all contract employees, volunteers and student interns who work within Church Health spaces at Crosstown Concourse. It is the intent of this policy to require any booster shots or subsequent annual vaccinations, as recommended by the CDC, to maintain vaccination status. Proof of vaccination is required absent a documented medical or religious exemption.

In our active, faith-based health ministry, students explore their passions and foster their gifts through many different professional and educational opportunities.

Internship FAQs

Church Health is a faith-based health care organization that seeks to reclaim the Church’s biblical commitment to care for our bodies and our spirits. We provide health care for the working uninsured and promote healthy bodies and spirits for all. 

An internship at Church Health is a great opportunity to gain relevant experience in your chosen field. Interns work with professionals and develop meaningful relationships with other interns within the program. Internships are unpaid.

Interns should meet the following requirements:

  • Must be at least 18 years old, a high school graduate or equivalent and have completed a minimum of one semester of college.
  • Must make a commitment of at least one semester (fall, spring or summer), serving at least eight hours per week, preferably for 1012 weeks.
Church Health interns are treated with the same respect as staff members and are expected to follow the same rules and guidelines. All interns must attend an intern orientation and are asked to commit to the policies and procedures of the Intern Handbook.

All Church Health internships are unpaid internships. Academic credit is available for internship positions when the program is available through your education institution. Church Health is glad to provide documentation of a completed internship and to complete the forms needed from your educational institution.

Note to applicants for The Well and Movement: Church Health is a non‐traditional Child Life setting and will not satisfy credit through the Child Life Council.

It is not required that any staff member of Church Health identify as Christian or be active in a faith community in any form. However, Church Health is a faith‐centered organization and all applicants must be devoted to the mission and virtues of Church Health.

Each intern reports to a supervisor who oversees day‐to‐day activities and provides guidance. The volunteer coordinator works with the supervisors and interns to ensure the best possible experience for everyone.

It is required that all interns work at least eight hours per week; it is preferred that interns work for 10—12 weeks consecutively. If you are unable to commit to the number of hours per week, you may consider volunteering for Church Health. Please contact our volunteer coordinator for more information.

If you are able to intern for a period of less than 10 weeks, you may indicate that on your application and can still be considered for an internship.

Interested applicants should submit an online application to be considered for available internship positions. Please make sure your application is completely filled out. Applicants are strongly encouraged to provide thoughtful, in‐depth responses to the short‐answer questions.

Due to the high volume of applications, Church Health is unable to respond to individual emails or phone calls.
