Summer Interns Needed (United States)

The American Academy of HIV Medicine (AAHIVM) is an independent organization of HIV SpecialistsTM and others dedicated to promoting excellence in HIV care. Through advocacy and education, the Academy is committed to supporting health care providers in HIV medicine and to ensuring better care for those living with AIDS and HIV disease.

As the largest independent organization of HIV frontline providers, our 2,000 members provide direct care to more than 340,000 HIV patients. This is more than two thirds of the patients in active treatment for HIV disease in the U.S. The Academy has a diverse membership composed of ID, IM, FP and GP specialists as well as NPs, PAs and Pharmacists.

We are seeking interns to assist in our policy, programs, communications, membership, and credentialing efforts. Interns are assigned duties consistent with their background, education, and interests to ensure the practical experience desired to meet their academic and career goals. An internship with AAHIVM would offer valuable experience and insight for any student interested in public health and health policy,
HIV/AIDS, government relations, communications, non-profit management, and membership organizations.

Unpaid internships are available for the summer of 2012 for undergraduate or graduate level students. Interns can choose to work part-time (minimum 16 hours per week) or full time. AAHIVM will accommodate any class credit/requirement possibilities. We offer basic work experience, as well as professional references upon departure.

Our offices are located in downtown Washington DC, near the Farragut North Metro stop.

Successful applicants will be bright, highly-motivated individuals with strong academic backgrounds and an interest in the domestic HIV epidemic.

To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to toby@aahivm.org no later than June 22 2012. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
