“Truly a phenomenal program and a fantastic opportunity. I am so lucky to have been able to participate in this program.”
– Title V MCH intern
In summer 2024, the National Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Workforce Development Center will support at least 6 teams of MCH students to participate in internships in state and territorial Title V programs.
What is Title V?
Title V agencies are funded through the Maternal and Child Health Block Grant and are typically located within state and territorial health departments. Title V refers to the state-federal partnership program that aims to “improve the health and well-being of women (particularly mothers) and children.” The aim of the Title V MCH Internship Program is to provide future MCH professionals with experience working in state and jurisdictional Title V agencies under the mentorship and guidance of Title V agency preceptors.
