Hi my name is Joe Perry and I am a gHU co-coordinator for the GlobeMed chapter at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I was wondering as to whether all the internship positions required a full 10 week commitment, as I will also be joining our GROW program for this summer. I completely understand if that is not possible but I though I would at least check to see!

Hi Joe,

Thanks so much for writing to us. We love your enthusiasm and engagement. Right now, all internships have a ten-week commitment requirement. However, different positions may have some leeway in terms of their start- and end-dates.

I hope this answers your question, and please reach out if you have anything else on your mind.

GlobeMed love,

Balungile Belz
Director of Communications
