Internship program summer 2023 profiles

This summer, the Dahdaleh Institute has worked with wonderful students through our dynamic, experiential education Global Health Internship Program. The program offers students to contribute to exciting research projects by working on literature reviews, data synthesis, cataloguing, content development, stakeholder engagement, and much more. They supported research projects studying experiential-based simulation learning; effects of resource insecurity on health outcomes; mental and emotional health and wellness; post-pandemic public health reforms; and impact of human behaviour on AMR.

Congratulations, and thanks to all the interns for a job well done!
