Preinternship Meetings :

Meet with their faculty advisor to obtain and review their Department Progress Report (DPR).
Confirm via email – in advance of the session in which they will participate – the specific meeting to be attended. RSVPs should be directed to Jen Spera, Administrative Assistant I, Office of the Dean (410-704-2132 / firstname.lastname@example.org)
Bring with them to the meeting their Department Progress Report (DPR) and a note from their faculty advisor (preferably written directly on the DPR) establishing that the student is eligible for internship upon completion of courses in which s/he is currently enrolled
Review the list of internship sites available online at the Department website before the preinternship meeting.
Students who do not fulfill requirements will not be guaranteed internship placement for the term requested.
NOTE: Students who are "Dual" concentrations, who intend on being placed in the community health setting for half of the semester, MUST also bring evidence of successful passing of the PRAXIS I or evidence of PRAXIS I waiver based on SAT scores to the pre-internship meeting.
* Faculty are responsible for planning, developing, and implementing curriculum for programs of study that are reflective of the needs
of the field and the certifying and accrediting bodies of our disciplines. The Community Health Internships are part of the curriculum
in the majors. The sites that participate in these Internships have been reviewed and approved for inclusion in our curriculum by the Community Health Internship Coordinator of the Department of Health Science.
All sites must sign a Letter of Agreement with the Department of Health Science, a legal document that stipulates how the Internship Site will be providing an educationally appropriate setting for our students. This document can only be signed by University officials.
Students are not legally allowed to enter into negotiations with potential internship sites.
