At Uzazi Village, we consider it part of our mission to help grow the next generation of birth workers, researchers, educators, public health advocates, and clinicians.
ABOUT ACADEMIC INTERNSHIPS
Our semester and summer internship opportunities are community health-focused. Interns assist with support groups, classes, programs, lactation clients, and research projects. Students work directly alongside a resident nurse, IBCLC, or staff member.
Our internship focus areas include:
Public relations and marketing projects
Programmatic assessments and evaluations
Community specific projects and collaborative initiatives
Maternal infant health meetings
Community health education for professionals and consumers
Our internship program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students who share an interest in maternal infant health, community health, or cultural immersion. Candidates from all other disciplines, such as public health, epidemiology, women’s studies, reproductive health, maternal child health, medicine, and anthropology are also encouraged to apply.
Student Midwife Internship
Uzazi Village is committed to solving health inequities through the restoration of the Black midwife. Our community-based midwives have long been missing from the healthcare landscape. Uzazi Village supports a midwife candidate via our clinical internship that assists candidates in meeting requirements for the NARM exam. Selected candidates will work alongside our staff midwife to care for our clients in the Ida Mae Clinic.
