The Center to Improve Veteran Involvement in Care (CIVIC), located at the VA Portland Health Care System, is sponsoring a paid internship for community college students to gain hands-on experience in health services research. Interns work directly with mentors and research teams to contribute to research on ways to improve quality and access to care for our veteran population. Individuals interested in working in healthcare or research may find this internship particularly insightful.
This internship is intended for community college students from groups historically excluded and underrepresented in research. This includes individuals who are Black, Native American, Alaskan Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, or Hispanic or Latino, as well as other underrepresented groups. Please see the Eligibility section below for a full list of criteria.
