Public Health Experiences and Internships

Welcome to Lentz University of the Metro Nashville Public Health Department. We appreciate your interest in an internship assignment or public health experience in our department.

Our vision promotes continuous learning and development for our employees as we "create healthy conditions" throughout Nashville. Additionally, we offer public health experiences for students and medical professionals that develop and enhance understanding and application of population-based public health skills relevant to the Nashville/Davidson County population.

We are fortunate to have public health practitioners on our staff who are extremely knowledgeable, possessing skills in public health theory, policy, research and practice. While working on projects, under the supervision of experienced public health leaders, students can apply their classroom learning to the "real world" challenges.

Please review the public health experiences checklist for information and contact information.
