Internship Program Overview
Project C.U.R.E.’s Internship Program provides upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level college students the opportunity to learn about global healthcare and the non-profit sector while gaining hands-on experience at any of our Project C.U.R.E. locations. Interns develop both professionally and personally as they contribute to Project C.U.R.E.’s mission: to identify, solicit, collect, sort and deliver medical supplies and services according to the imperative needs of the world.
