The Dahdaleh Institute worked with exceptional students this year through our Internship Program, which is founded in an experiential education approach. Students completed program practicums with us, were hired through the Research at York program, or volunteered their time as research assistants.

Congratulations and thank you to all the interns for jobs well done!

2021/2022 Interns

Learnings & Doings

Mentored by faculty fellows and research fellows, interns learned firsthand about a range of today’s global health challenges and how to address them through excellence in research. The internship program is coordinated by Theresa Dinh, who matched trainees with researchers and guided them throughout the experiential learning experience.

Hear from the interns themselves. The following students presented their work at the 2022 Dahdaleh Institute Intern Symposium on April 20, attended by Dahdaleh Institute fellows, faculty members, and staff:

  • Victoria Cassar (9:40): War, Disaster, and Migration
