Prior to beginning the internship, this manual should be read in its entirety. Students are held accountable for all material found in the manual. When questions arise, please refer to the manual first as most if not all questions will be answered here. If the answers are not here, please contact the internship TA at publichealthinternships@gmail.com or the department internship coordinator, Stephanie Lutz, stephanie_lutz@byu.edu. Students needing an appointment regarding the internship process must first read the "Requirements" section and this manual.
