The interns have exposure to many areas of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Depending on the COVID-19 situation at the time of the internship, this position may be partially or fully remote.

Student interns will also be exposed to a variety of standards and assess when to apply them based on the specific data or ASPR requirements. The internship schedule is flexible and will be determined based on the selected student’s course schedule and/or requirements set by their program of study.
