Dahdaleh Global Health Internship Program

Since 2018, the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research provides dynamic experiential education and training opportunities for students through our internship program. Global health interns work in a professional environment to support high-calibre research in the areas of Planetary Health, Global Health and Humanitarianism, and Global Health Foresighting. Most intern positions are directly involved in research projects. A limited number of opportunities exist to support research through communications, event planning and administration.


"The aspects of the internship program I find most rewarding and helpful are the interactions I have with other interns and members of the Dahdaleh Institute. I always appreciate hearing others’ thought processes, insightful comments, and questions. Specifically, moments like the Intern Symposium, my meetings with my supervisors and team, and the many seminars and events held at the Institute have been very insightful and enjoyable."

"I am working alongside everyone at the Dahdaleh Institute to make a positive global impact. I thoroughly enjoy the weekly Institute seminars, as they are a chance to meet new members. It is a very welcoming and inclusive community."

"I found working and being around all the PhDs and supervisors very helpful. Hearing and learning about their backgrounds and experiences was extremely valuable to me as someone who was unsure about what the next steps in my career looked like."
