The Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center’s internship program is open to all students of accredited schools of public health. Highly motivated undergraduate students with a specific interest in public health and preventive medical research are also considered. The internship provides a unique experience where students can apply their skills and knowledge learned in the classroom and gain experience working on projects funded by the CDC, NIH, NCCAM, private foundations and industry. Interns will assist the PRC research staff in developing and implementing community based participatory research projects, endothelial function clinical trials, behavioral research studies focusing on obesity prevention, nutrition and smoking cessation and other project work as necessary. This program supports public health related internship experiences for masters degree-seeking students at accredited schools of public health to complete a research and practice-based internship program.
