Please Note: Matched interns become employees of Wake Forest University and are required to complete a pre-employment screening conducted by the Office of Human Resources, including a drug test and background check. As a drug free workplace, we do not tolerate the use of drugs that are not prescribed by a physician or are illegal in the state of North Carolina, including marijuana. Criminal background checks are reviewed to determine eligibility for employment. Failure to satisfactorily complete the pre-employment screening will result in termination of the match agreement.
Interviews will take place via videoconference with telephone as a back-up. Each applicant will have the opportunity to interview with members of the Internship Administrative Committee and current interns, as well as additional UCC staff members, and ask questions that they may have about the program.

Internship slot offers will be made through the APPIC National Matching program in compliance with the APPIC policy. WFU is an equal opportunity employer and adheres to APPIC’s nondiscrimination policies.
