About our Internship

The SEAOHUN Regional Internship Program, adapted from SEAOHUN’s flagship fellowship program, will provide opportunities for undergraduate students or recent bachelor's degree graduates in SEAOHUN member countries to gain hands-on experience working on One Health issues at renown host organizations/institutes for 3 to 6 months locally or cross-countries. In addition to strengthening their skills in One Health, working in a different country will enable interns to obtain exposure to working in a diverse team, cross-cultural experience and opportunities to network and build relationships with host institute and affiliate staff.

Paula’s messages about her SEAOHUN Internship Experience

I am truly grateful for the SEAOHUN Regional Internship experience. It has broadened my outlook and inspired me to continue pursuing knowledge and wisdom that will contribute to the expansion of One Health. The partner institutions provided us with well-equipped facilities and adequate guidance from supervisors.


Additionally, being surrounded by intelligent, goal-driven, and compassionate people was invaluable. This kind of program truly helps ignite purpose and motivation, not only for One Health enthusiasts but also for students who have yet to be introduced to this concept. I am thankful to USAID and SEAOHUN for shaping my mind and encouraging me to explore more horizons.
