Internships

Here at Uzazi Village, we consider it a part of our mission to help grow the next generation of birth workers, especially birth workers of color. 

We are now accepting Spring 2018/Summer 2018 internship applications. 

Our student/internship slots are primarily community-health rather than clinical skill focused. Students will assist with support groups, teaching classes, lactation clients and assist with programs and research projects.   Students will work directly alongside our resident nurse, IBCLC or staff. A contract must be in place with the school prior to student placement. We are particularly interested in semester long placements.  

We accept nursing students from undergraduate and graduate programs interested in either maternal infant health, community health, or a cultural immersion. Interns from other disciplines (including public health, epidemiology, women’s studies, reproductive health, maternal child health, medicine, anthropology, etc.) may apply for short (summer) or extended (semester) internships through an application and interview process.  Interns will have a daily presence in the facility and take on a self-directed project such as facilitating a support group, writing a grant, starting a new outreach or program, or conducting research. Interns will work closely with and be supervised by Uzazi Village staff.

We are currently taking applications for Fall/Winter 2017/Spring 2018. Our students and interns enjoy the following experiences:

• Public Relations and Marketing Projects

• Programmatic Assessments and Evaluations

• Maternal Infant Health Meetings 

• Community Health Education for Professionals

• Support Group Facilitation

• Community Specific Projects and Collaborative Projects
