Who is eligible to apply? Any DMU student who will be enrolled in a degree program at the time of the internship (Summer 2020), and who will be available to go on site for 6-8 weeks for an internship in Summer 2020. Students who graduate from their DMU program in Spring 2020 or who won't start their degree program until Fall 2020 are not eligible to apply.
You can apply for multiple internships, but must submit separate applications with distinct personal statements and a different recommendation letter for each application.
The Department of Global Health’s Distinguished Global Health Internships are highly selective research opportunities which enable students to explore global health research topics at various organizations. Students have the opportunity to work with researchers on projects such as conducting systematic reviews to create evidence-based educational materials for worldwide distribution.
In the summer of 2020, one DMU student will complete a research internship at each of the following organizations:
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- Pan American Health Organization (PAHO)
- United States Global Change and Research Program (USGCRP)
Interns will work with researchers at these organizations, with the possibility to pursue individual research interests, pending availability and approval from the organization.
