Intern and Nursing Student Educational Opportunities

Internship Opportunities

The Vermilion County Health Department offers project-oriented and program specific experiences through its internship program. We can also offer you a variation of projects and program experience if you prefer to get an overall experience of public health.  If you are interested in an internship, please complete the Internship Application. Send your completed application with a copy of your resume to Melissa Rome at mrome@vchd.org or fax to 217-431-7483. All of our internship opportunities are unpaid.

Nursing School Educational Opportunities

The Vermilion County Health Department continues to collaborate with local schools of nursing, Lakeview College of Nursing, Danville Area Community College School of Nursing and the University Of Illinois College Of Nursing. In 2015, VCHD facilitated 79 clinical experiences for nursing students. Nursing students completed observational experiences through the Environmental Health and Women, Infant and Children (WIC) programs at the Vermilion County Health Department. In addition, nursing students worked on projects benefiting the health department and the community.  If you are interested in educational opportunities with the Vermilion County Health Department, please contact Melissa Rome at 217-431-2662 ext. 246 or e-mail mrome@vchd.org.
