Doctors Without Borders (Medecins Sans Frontieres – MSF) Internships

MSF is an international organization that provides emergency response, health care access, long-term care, mobile treatment, advocacy, and research for vulnerable people around the world. They have offices in over 70 countries and work in a variety of settings, including with refugee, migrant, and displaced communities. In refugee camps, they provide necessary medical care and supplies to ensure the health and safety of refugees temporarily placed there. They also work with other groups displaced by conflict and natural disasters to make sure they have medical care while they are in transition.

MSF offers an internship program through the New York office that takes place three times a year. Interns are paid an hourly salary and can apply to work in a variety of positions, including advocacy, marketing and multimedia, finance, access campaigns, research, and more. Interns must be eligible to work in the US without sponsorship and are responsible for obtaining their own accommodation.
