Undergraduate interns play a significant role at MEDA. We rely on interns to help us accomplish a variety of tasks that allow us to further the mission of the organization which includes administrative tasks, event planning assistance, and outreach. Please note: Undergraduate interns do not have direct contact with MEDA’s clients and will not serve counseling roles.
- Outreach/Programming Intern is assigned to work directly with the Clinical staff at MEDA. This intern helps MEDA raise awareness about eating disorders and about MEDA’s services by assisting staff with ongoing projects. This may include, but is not limited to, attending health fairs, community events, and helping with advocacy efforts, including marketing. Interns will also assist with minor administrative tasks. This intern will work in conjunction with the Events/Communications and Program Intern and the entire MEDA staff. At MEDA, we encourage our interns to explore topic(s) in the field of particular interest to them. As such, interns will work on an individual project over the course of their time at MEDA.
MEDA will accept 2-3 interns for each semester: Fall, Spring and Summer.
These opportunities apply to all prospective interns who are not obtaining a graduate-level degree at this time. Please note that all of our undergraduate internships are unpaid, but provide the opportunity for valuable training. To be considered for an undergraduate internship, please submit your resume, cover letter and completed Undergraduate application to Info@medainc.org with the subject line Undergraduate Internship Application.
