You can either direct them to Information for H410 Preceptors page or provide them with the following document, depending on if you are an undergraduate or graduate student.
H410 is required and needs to be done for the amount indicated above.
An internship site can be found by contacting sites from the suggested site list located on the H410 Internship Process and Requirements page, applying for sites sent out through the H410 listserv or by doing your own searching and networking.
The H410 Internship Process and Requirements page has an example of a cover letter and resume
The H410 Internship Process and Requirements page has an example of a professional email draft to send to a prospective internship site,
If you are staying at the same site between the two terms, Form A is turned in before the internship term, and then Forms C, D, E and the portfolio are done both terms.
You would complete one and a half internships, for 18 credits and 540 hours. This would be done over two terms, and would incorporate both HMP and HPHB competencies from Form C.
Please see the policy on the H410 Internship Process and Requirements page.
You need to do a 12 credit, 360 hour internship for your major and a separate 270 hour, 9 credit internship for your EOH minor.

The official start date of an internship is the first day of the academic term, and the end date is Tuesday of Finals Week for undergraduates.
There is the option to start early, before the start of the term, as long as you are registered for H410.
All due dates follow the academic calendar.
You need to submit Form A to Karen Elliott by the deadline to get an override that will then allow you to register, please see FAQ #14.
You received your PIN from your academic advisor, we do not have them.
When you register for H410, 1 credit is the default, you need to manually change this to the credit amount you need to take for your H410 requirement.
There are optional assignments in the portfolio template that you can complete for extra hours. These are submitted by Tuesday of Finals Week. Opportunities should be free to the student. Please see the portfolio for specific instructions. Some specific examples of professional development to count as extra hours include:
Form A needs to be emailed as one file, in pdf or Word, to allow for signatures.
The internship must be separate from a current job, with separate projects, hours and preferably a separate supervisor.
Internships have to be with community partners or campus centers such as Student Health Services, CAPS or HSRC. Working with faculty (not extension in the community) would be considered more individualized work that would count as a project or a practicum.
Yes! You as long as you are not a double option (HMP and HPHB) or have the ESH/EOH minor. H410 can be taken for up to 24 credits. If you have done your required 12 credit internship and need upper division credits, you can do another 12 credit H410 or you can do a 6 credit H410.
An affiliation agreement is a legal contract between OSU and the internship organization. We do no require them, but if sites do, please visit the H410 Internship Process and Requirements page, for the full information on affiliation agreements.
Past experiences cannot be counted for the internship. You must be registered for the term you plan to complete your internship to receive credit.
It is not encouraged, but if you have two sites and the schedules and hours coordinate, you can do two different sites, duplicating all of the paperwork except submitting one portfolio.
Please contact the Office of the Registrar if you need proof of graduation early.
Yes, all international internships need to be approved through IE3.
Please see the IE3 section of the H410 Internship Process and Requirements page. IE3 has an individual placement option, if you already have a site in mind, and you can get it approved through them. This is due to safety.
Yes, H410 is Pass/No Pass, it is not on the letter grading system (A-F).
An Incomplete can be given if at least 70% of the work has been done.
The Contract for Completion of Incomplete (“I”) Grade form (pdf) needs to be completed between the student and internship coordinator to agree upon the rest of the work that needs to be completed.
An “I” appears as the grade, and the student has up to one year to turn in the remaining work.
Once the remaining requirements have been submitted, the internship coordinator changes the I to a Pass.
If you are graduating, an incomplete will delay graduation until the term you submit the rest of the requirements.
