Suspension of Internship Requirement

Due to extenuating circumstances of COVID-19, we have suspended current internship requirements for public health students pursuing internships for summer 2020.

What does this mean?

  • Students graduating in April 2020 and 2021 will not be required to do an internship.
  • Students may opt to do an internship experience this summer or during the academic year.
  • Internships and project-based activities may be completed remotely.

Travel Resources

Up to date information can be found on Global Michigan or UofM COVID website.
