Internships

Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH)

The mission of MDPH is to prevent illness, injury, and premature death, to assure access to high quality public health and health care services, and to promote wellness and health equity for all people in the Commonwealth. We envision a Commonwealth in which all people enjoy optimal health.

MDPH seeks to improve and expand its methods of community engagement. Community engagement is the process by which DPH connects with individuals, communities, and organizations/institutions to inform, implement, and evaluate its priorities, programs and services  and Community engagement processes are ongoing relationships between stakeholders, community-based organizations, consumers, residents, local public health, providers, and more. The ”Community Engagement Standards for Community Health Planning Guideline” was adopted as part of updates made to regulations in the Determination of Need process in 2017, in order to help hospitals leverage their Community Heath Needs Assessment and community engagement process to meet the DPH community health planning standards.  Additionally, there is interest in aligning the community guidelines for MDPH staff so that DPH community engagement efforts are reflected in the standards. As a first step, key informant interviews have already been conducted on 16 MDPH programmatic strategic plans to understand how they incorporated a variety of community engagement methods through their planning. In addition, there is a Community Engagement Work Group dedicated to bringing together many bureau and office lenses and experiences to the conversation.

The intern will have an opportunity to engage MDPH staff, through the Community Engagement work group and other identified key partners. The work will include an environmental scan of current DPH community engagement efforts to develop an annotated directory of existing programs, points of contact, and resources with an emphasis on highlighting best practice areas within DPH.
