Academic Internship Program
The Academic Internship Program is a university-wide initiative that offers any undergraduate student the opportunity to take part in an internship opportunity. Housed in the Division of Professional Practice, the Academic Internship Program is credit-based and provides incredible professional opportunities. AIP connects interested students and prospective employers by using an innovative curriculum and teaching method to create a partnership between students, participating employers, and the University.
Career Development Center
The Career Development Center offers students many resources in searching for and finding permanent placement upon graduation, but also assists current students in preparing for interviews for internships and other professional experiences. The CDC also offers an internship listserv that is sent out regularly with updates about positions that prospective employers have available. The CDC also runs career fairs and fests, on-campus recruiting, and workshops for resumes and cover letters, among many other services. Check out the internship site today!
Internship Opportunities Abroad
Interning abroad can be one of the most amazing and exhilarating experiences in a student's life. The University of Cincinnati International Programs Office can assist students with finding, planning, and completing an internship abroad. Programs last anywhere from a few weeks, to a semester or longer and many offer academic credit so students can continue working towards their degree. UC International has connections with several countries and programs to help you select the right experience. We encourage our students to meet with their college academic advisor and UC International before making this decision. Additionally, grants and other funding sources are available through a University Honors Program grant or UC International grant.
The Crossroad Health Center Volunteer Internship Program (CVIP) is one of our pre-approved experiences. This program provides the opportunity for volunteers to experience the clinical aspects of health care through patient contact and volunteer involvement. Volunteers assist physicians, nurses and administrators who are then able to share their perspective with their volunteers through mentorship and clinical training.
Other Undergraduate Internship Opportunities
There are a number of other internships available through various academic programs. We advise our students to work with their college academic advisors, faculty, and department offices to explore opportunities early and often. We suggest planning for an internship at least one semester prior to the anticipated start date.
