Gaining Experience While in School

Boston is rich in opportunities to intern and volunteer. We encourage you to use experiential opportunities to gain exposure to the public health arena early on. Our students have interned with the Boston Public Health Commission, The Aids Action Committee, Health Care For All, The Institute for Community Health, Massachusetts Department of Public Health, as well as many others.

Career Services maintains listings of current internship and volunteer opportunities in Career Connector, our proprietary online career management system.

Opportunities to Work On-Campus While in School

The PHPD Career Services office posts PHPD Research (RA) and Teaching (TA) Assistantships, as well as other on-campus PHPD project and administrative jobs in Career Connector, our online jobs database. In 2015-2016, there were over 40 TA opportunities, over 30 RA opportunities, and 20 project/administrative opportunities available with our faculty and staff. Given the small size of our programs, there are an abundance of on-campus employment choices for matriculated students. Incoming students receive access to Career Connector during orientation.

Tufts’ Student Employment Office is another resource for students seeking on– and off-campus work/study and non-work/study positions within other schools at Tufts, mainly on the Medford campus. JOBX is the student employment job board.

Last, the University’s main Tufts Employment Recruitment Site posts all University jobs (full and part-time benefits eligible positions) across Tufts’ three campuses.

Fellowships and Training Opportunities

Fellowships and Training Opportunities provide extended, in-depth opportunities to continue learning in your field. Our students have been awarded prestigious CDC Fellowships, International and Boston Schweitzer Fellowships, and Fogarty Scholars among others. Current Fellowship opportunities are also housed in Career Connector, our proprietary online career management system.

Please continue to explore our website and if you have any questions about employment options as a potential student or graduate of Tufts University, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We hope to see you at Tufts!
