Public health is a dynamic, challenging and exciting profession. Clark County Public Health believes that developing future public health leaders is critical for our community. We are committed to providing opportunities for education, training and experience to emerging public health professionals. By partnering with higher education institutions, our staff strives to offer exceptional internships in different public health disciplines. We host unpaid internships as virtual, in-person or a hybrid model for student interns in several public health programs.

Current opportunities

Student nurses
