Internship Rules

and Site Information

PH 496


A site is any agency that offers an internship.

Any site you choose must have a contract with CSULA before you can do an internship there.

Please visit the department’s internship website for a list of approved internship sites.

If a site does not have a contract, you can do an internship there if:

  • The site is willing to sign a contract.

  • The contract is signed before the start of the quarter in which you want to do an internship.

  • This process can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.


If you want us to create a contract with a site, you must email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

  • Name of the organization.

  • Name, phone #, & email address of a contact person.

    • You should have already spoken to this person about interning.

      You must have this information to Dr. Hoffman at least 6 weeks prior to the start of the quarter in which you plan to do the internship.


Once you have chosen a site
Once you have chosen a site: email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

  • Call the contact person listed for that site. Discuss options, duties, responsibilities, etc.

  • Contact Dr. Hoffman to make sure the internship is acceptable.

  • Set up a meeting with the internship contact person. At the end of this meeting you will need 2 documents:

    • A Letter of Acceptance.

    • The Learning Plan.


The letter of acceptance
The Letter of Acceptance email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

The site should provide the following on letterhead stationery:

  • Dates of the internship.

  • What you will do (your responsibilities).

  • The name of your supervisor.

  • A statement that they approve of your Learning Plan.

  • The signature of a representative.


The learning plan
The Learning Plan email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

  • Print out the Learning Plan document from the Public Health Department website.

  • Fill this out and read it completely. You may copy the Service Objectives & Learning Objectives from the Letter of Acceptance. If you are unsure what to write, ask your supervisor.


Once you have the documents
Once you have the documents: email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

  • Bring them to Dr. Hoffman.

    • She is in the office Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

    • If she’s not there when you stop by, you can leave the documents in her box in Caroline’s office.

  • Once Dr. Hoffman approves the documents she will give you permission to enroll in PH 496.


To enroll in ph 496
To enroll in PH 496 email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

  • You must have approval from Dr. Hoffman.

  • Dr. Hoffman will give your name and CIN to Caroline Trejo, who will give you permission to enroll. You will be notified of this.

  • Once you have permission, log into GET and enroll in the course. You must do this within two days or the permission elapses, so don’t wait!


Ph 496
PH 496 email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

  • This course is scheduled for Thursdays at 6:10.

  • We will meet 3-4 Thursdays during the quarter. Check this bulletin board for dates.

  • If you have a scheduling conflict with Thursdays at 6:10, talk to Dr. Hoffman.


FAQs email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

Q: What types of sites are appropriate for an internship?

A: Many sites are appropriate, but your internship must involve tasks related to public health. Check with Dr. Hoffman if you are unsure about a site.


FAQs email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

Q: Can I do 8 units of internship in one quarter?

A: Yes, but we require you to find 2 internship sites and do 120 hours at each site. We may allow students to do 8 units at one site, but this is rare and depends on the project the site is proposing.


FAQs email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

Q: Can I get a paid internship?

A: If you find one, sure. However, many internships are unpaid.

Q: I already work at XYZ Agency. Can I do my internship there?

A: No, you will need to do an internship at a site other than where you work.


FAQs email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

Q: I’m a new Public Health major. When should I do my internships?

A: You will do your internships during your senior year. Internships are an opportunity for you to use the skills you’ve gained as a PH major, so you need to take at least a year of classes before doing an internship.


FAQs email Dr. Hoffman with the following information:

Q: I am taking a class at 6:10 on Thursdays. Can I still take 496?

A: Yes. Talk with Dr. Hoffman to make arrangements.
