Program Overview

The HPDP internship program provides a limited number of students with practical experience working in multi-disciplinary prevention research. Interns may work on projects in areas such as women’s health; prevention of chronic diseases; healthy aging; healthy youth; obesity prevention and control; and sustainable food systems.

While interning at HPDP, students will be supervised by a HPDP faculty or staff member. Specific responsibilities will vary by project, yet all interns will have the opportunity to participate in applied research to test new ways to confront the most pressing health problems facing our society. Internships are unpaid.

Application Deadline and Internship Timeline

HPDP welcomes applications from undergraduate and graduate students. All applications will be reviewed by an internal committee but not all may be matched with an internship opportunity due to evolving project needs from year to year. Anyone interested in pursuing an internship should complete the online application by the appropriate deadline listed in the table below. Internships are available for the school year or in the summer.
