Oakland County is home to approximately 1.2 million residents and is located in southeast Michigan. We have a mixture of city and rural landscapes. The county contains the headwaters to six watersheds, feeding approximately 400 lakes. An internship here exposes the student to a variety of programs in local environmental health including: fixed food inspections, on-site sewage disposal permitting, and drinking water well program inspections. Training is provided for conducting public swimming pool inspections and sampling for our bathing beach monitoring program. The majority of the student’s time here will be spent working in the latter two programs. Arrangements can be made for low-cost housing at a local university.
I will send out a notice when the positions been posted. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the internship program. Thank you for your interest in Oakland County Health Division’s environmental health summer internship program."
