About Physicians for Social Responsibility

Physicians for Social Responsibility has been challenging, informing and instituting legislation regarding public health and safety since its founding in 1961. It has directed the brunt of its efforts toward three major programs: environment and health (educating the public about environmental and health threats due to global warming and pollution), gun violence prevention and security (advocacy and education about eliminating nuclear arms).

Interns work with full-time staff to develop communication and outreach materials, research relevant issues, and attend meetings and Congressional briefings. Participants may also expect to handle some administrative and clerical tasks. Interns get to choose on which of PSR's three programs they wish to work.


Open to college juniors and seniors, recent and not-sorecent college graduates and grad students.
