ICH’s educational mission is to provide experiential learning opportunities in community-based research and evaluation. The ICH Internship Program provides internships to graduate and undergraduate students interested in a wide array of fields including public health, medicine, healthcare law/policy, and healthcare management. We train students on principles of community-based participatory research and provide opportunities for these principles to be applied in local communities. Students work directly with ICH staff members, who represent a broad range of disciplines, including medicine, public health, epidemiology, nutrition, anthropology, social work, and psychology.
What our interns say about their experiences at ICH:
“Interacting with community partners was valuable as one of the tenets of community-based participatory approaches is to engage them in research/evaluation process. This is something that cannot be experienced in a classroom setting.”
“It was a great experience to learn from the employees at ICH and I really appreciate the fact that mentorship and teaching plays such a large part of the mission.”
