How to apply for an internship with WHO Headquarters
Application Dates and Deadlines
Summer

To be considered for a summer internship, applications are accepted between January 1 – February 28 each year.

Summer internships are usually held between May and October.

Winter

To be considered for a winter internship, applications are accepted between August 1 - September 30 each year.

Winter internships are usually held between November and April.

To apply for a WHO Internship, please see the link at the bottom of this page which will only be available during the stated application periods.

The application process requires filling a questionnaire that covers your education, current studies, language skills and experience.

Students who lack professional experience may find it challenging to complete the expertise section. Suggestion: Review your experience in light of your academic career or any activities you've done. Show how these experiences have provided you with skills and competencies to work in a team, to make decisions and to solve problems. These may relate to your actual schooling or a personal situation.

In the questionnaire, articulate your motivation for seeking a WHO Internship. Describe what type of project you feel you could contribute while interning with WHO. Tell us about your ideas. Include your dates of availability and any additional information that you feel would facilitate the selection process.

Internships are available in a wide variety of areas related to the technical and administrative work of WHO. Our Information Sheet for Interns regarding WHO departments (see related links to the right) provides links to WHO-related websites about WHO's technical and administrative work. Please review this information and specify which area of WHO would be most suitable for you. The more specific you can be in your request, the better chances there will be to match you to one of our technical or administrative programmes.

If selected for a WHO Internship, you will be asked to provide certified copies of proof of enrolment in a course of studies and proof of personal medical insurance (illness) coverage (which must include Switzerland.) Do not send these or other documents until specifically asked to do so.

All applications for WHO Internships are acknowledged when received and are made available to technical units for review. The period of time for this review is indeterminate. You will not be informed of the status of your application, so if you do not hear from a WHO technical unit in a reasonable period of time (say 1-2 months after the application closing date), you can assume that you will not be considered for a WHO internship at this time.

An important reminder: WHO Internships are not paid. Be aware that living in Geneva is expensive and finding accommodation can be challenging. All intern candidates should be aware of these factors before they consider applying for a WHO Internship in Geneva. WHO does not provide financial support, so interns are encouraged to seek funding from other external sources. WHO does not sign any agreements, proposed or required by a sponsor, university or equivalent institution.

Please note: WHO does NOT charge for internships so beware of any programmes that "facilitate" your obtaining an internship but require the paying of money.

Applying for funding can be time-consuming and complicated, so interns are advised to start their funding search well in advance. When applying for funding, you are likely to be requested to provide proof of offer stating that you have been accepted for an internship with the WHO. If accepted for an internship with the WHO, you will be eligible to join the online intern community (EZcollab) where additional information will be provided to you to aid you in identifying alternative sources of funding.

Warning: If selected for an internship and you are identifying accommodation in Geneva, do NOT make advance payments or provide guarantee sums in advance of your arrival. This is particularly important if someone asks you to wire funds to Western Union or a bank outside of Switzerland. Never wire money at the request of any prospective "landlord" via Western Union, Moneygram, or any other wire service. Even if they tell you to wire the funds to a friend or relative's name "to be safe", it is a trap! Never send a scan of your passport or other ID. These thieves will use your identity to scam others. There are some situations, however, where you may need to send funds - a reasonable amount of one or two month’s rent - to secure a place to stay. Be careful.

WHO receives a very large number of applications each year. Please review our Frequently Asked Questions (see related links to the right) if you have questions concerning the WHO Internship Programme.

If you have additional questions, please write to: interns@who.int.

WHO Internship/Volunteer Application - Summer 2016 Please note: Due to the late opening of the registration for summer internships this year, the registration will be open from 22 January 2016 to 21 March 2016

Outside of this, WHO occasionally engages volunteers who do not need to meet the internship requirement of being enrolled in a degree programme. However, as WHO’s primary focus is the internship programme, priority is given to candidates who apply for internships. Please note that the WHO Technical Unit that evaluates your application for a voluntary assignment will give serious consideration to your professional background, including the level of experience, that would enable you to contribute to their technical work. In case you wish to apply as a volunteer you may use the standard online internship application and indicate that you wish to be considered for a voluntary assignment in your motivation letter.

  • Can I contact a WHO staff member in the department that I am interested to intern in to ask more about the internship structure and tasks?

  • This would not be possible as we cannot provide email contacts for WHO staff. If you are selected for an internship, the relevant contact person from the Technical Unit will be in touch with you.

  • An application link will be available on the web page during the two application seasons. When you click on the application link, a special link is sent to your email address. Complete the questionnaire as completely as possible. Applicants are encouraged to research WHO's many areas of work by reviewing the WHO Information Sheet for Interns. All applications remain active for a period of 6 months. Applicants are asked to reapply if they were not offered an internship after this period, yet remain interested in being considered for a WHO internship.

  • The World Health Organization receives a large number of intern applications each year. In order to manage this volume we accept intern applications during our two application seasons: Summer and Winter. Please see the main page of the website for dates that these application periods are open.

Also include your dates of availability and any additional information that you feel would facilitate the selection process.

  • Which areas of public health interest can I select in my application?

  • You are advised to consult this information sheet where you will get information on WHO’s areas of work: http://www.who.int/employment/internship/WHOInterns/en/. Based on this, when you apply using the online application form, you can select the areas that you would be interested to undertake an internship in.

  • After submitting my online internship application, do I need to take any other action to ensure that my application is reviewed by the specific department(s) that I am interested in?

  • You do not need to take any further action after submitting your application. When completing the online application, you have the opportunity to indicate three areas of work in which you would like to undertake your internship. Your application will be made available to the relevant WHO Technical Units for their consideration, and they will contact you directly if your application is shortlisted. You will not be informed if your application is unsuccessful.

  • Should I arrange an interview?

  • No, WHO will contact you if you have been selected for an interview. Nor is it necessary or advised that intern applicants send diplomas, school-related or other documents to WHO. If and when selected, the technical unit will ask for supporting documents.

  • When can I expect to hear about the outcome of my internship application??

  • Your application will be acknowledged but you will not be informed of the status of your application. Whenever you apply, your application is made available to WHO Technical Units for their review and consideration. Normally, if you do not hear from a WHO Technical Unit in a reasonable period of time (1-2 months after the application closing date), you can assume that your application has not been successful. You can re-apply in the next session as long as you still meet the eligibility requirements.

Some additional information that might be useful can be found under related links to the right of this page.

  • My school/sponsor requires me to obtain a signed agreement with WHO, will this be possible?

  • WHO does not agree to execute any agreements proposed or required by a sponsor, university or equivalent institution. The only agreement that WHO signs is the Letter for Intern which must be countersigned as a condition to any internship and before the beginning of any internship. WHO does not enter into any framework agreements with any external entitites concerning the placement of interns.

  • Will my internship be graded?

  • At the end of an internship the receiving department will prepare a written performance evaluation and provide feed-back.

  • Is there anything else I should know?

  • Employment prospects: While a WHO internship is a very positive experience to have on your résumé/curriculum vitae, the WHO Internship programme is not connected with WHO employment activities and there should be no expectation of such. Interns may not apply for posts advertised internally to WHO staff during the period of their internship and for three months following the end of their internship. .
