Office of Student Internships

Our Center for Health Professions Education has created educational experiences to inspire students from college through medical school to pursue the health careers needed most across our region.

Our Mission

The Office of Student Internships creates meaningful health experiences for students interested in pursuing healthcare careers. Internship opportunities give students a chance to explore various healthcare disciplines including family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, dental, pharmacy, and mental health. Internships vary in focus and duration, but all provide engaging and collaborative experiences within MAHEC and support our overall goal to train the next generation of healthcare professionals.


We provide a variety of student internship and fellowship opportunities beginning in college through medical school with MAHECxplorer through medical school with our rural-focused Kenan Primary Care Medical Scholars. To learn more about each program, please click on the links below.
