Internship Program: 2020-2021 Year In Review
Over the 2020-2021 academic year, the Dahdaleh Institute worked with exceptional students 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.
Congratulations and thank you to all the trainees for jobs well done!
Learnings & Doings
Mentored by Faculty and Research Fellows, student interns learned firsthand about today’s priority 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. These presentations were made at the 2021 Dahdaleh Institute Intern Symposium on April 22 in which the Interns were able to share what they did and learned at the Dahdaleh Institute, and what they plan to do next. The event was attended by Dahdaleh Institute fellows, faculty members, research team and staff.
