The Northwestern Health Unit works with our educational institutions to provide student placements in careers related to public health. The types of fields we have provided placements for include medicine, nursing, public health inspection, dieticians, speech and language pathology, health promotion, human resources, accounting and information technology.
If you are a student interested in a placement with the Northwestern Health Unit, we would recommend you first speak to your academic advisor at your school to find out whether we qualify as a placement agency. Your school should help you complete the necessary forms for an application.
All requests for placements should be directed to our Human Resources department and should include the student name, University or College, faculty, health unit office or community placement site.
