** ( See below for due date information regarding Preinternship Meetings for Fall 2013 interns)
Students anticipating an internship must attend a Community Health Preinternship Meeting.
Students should 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Students in need of further information should contact Dr. Hutton-Rogers. .LHuttonrogers@towson.edu
Prior to attending the pre-internship meeting, students must have met with their faculty advisor to obtain and review their Department
Progress Report (DPR).
To participate in the pre-internship meeting, students must:
• (a) bring with them 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
•(b) Review – before the pre-internship meeting – the list of internship sites is available online at the Department website. Students
who do not fulfill both requirements will not be guaranteed internship placement for the term requested.
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.
Students on disciplinary or academic probation are NOT permitted to participate in a community health internship.
** 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.
All information above relates only to Community Health Education Internships. Dr. Wengert will distribute
comparable material for those participating in Student Teaching.
