NINDS Health Disparities in Tribal Communities Summer Internship Program (SIP)
An internship is a work experience program that allows beginners to have on-the-job training in a particular industry; these programs usually last for several weeks to a few months. An externship is more practical, generally takes place over a shorter period of time, and is sometimes similar to a job shadowing program. Either type of program can be paid or unpaid in the United States, and some are connected to college credits, while others are not.
