Internship Opportunity with Model Healthy Campus

The Wellness Network and Dell Medical School’s Model Healthy Campus Initiative is recruiting interns for our pilot challenge for Spring 2016! Please help us spread to word to students.

Interested applications should fill out the Internship Application by the deadline on Dec 1st 2015 by 11:59pm.

Model Healthy Campus is an initiative focused on two things: understanding what health means to UT Austin’s students, faculty, and staff and enabling collaboration at a huge scale to help us creatively address our health needs on campus.   Interns will learn design thinking and work with the Design Institute for Health to help refine, prototype, and assess the ideas for our Spring 2016 Challenge.  We are looking for enthusiastic people from all backgrounds and majors interested in collaborative teamwork.

You can learn more at the Model Healthy Campus Initiative website–  you can also download our handy 1-page flyer on the right side of the page and join our mailing list.
