The Secondary Field in Global Health and Health Policy is centered on the interdisciplinary exploration of health care, health policy, and health science. Through a curriculum that encourages experiential learning, the program enables students to explore a wide range of topics ranging from transnational health problems and social determinants to a concentrated focus on social responses, such as health systems and health policies. Upon completion of the secondary field, GHHP students have learned to actively engage with complex themes from a variety of perspectives, conduct health-related research, and critically think about the full spectrum of health issues, both domestic and global.
This summer, the Harvard Global Health Institute has funded 72 exceptional students who are traveling to 20 cities and countries around the world and are working with 53 different organizations in the field of global health. We are pleased to introduce them here!
The application deadline has passed for many of HGHI's summer research and internship opportunities, but it's not too late to apply to the ones below! Applications for these will be accepted until February 5th at 5PM. The ones highlighted in yellow have not received many applications yet, so we encourage you to apply!
*Applying for any of these starred internships will not count against the three application limit, so you may apply for them in addition to three others. You do not need to receive permission to submit the additional applications.
We are now accepting applications for fully funded summer internships and research placements. Check out the HGHI Summer Research and Internships Program page for descriptions of over 50 summer opportunities. Make sure to start your applications soon because a letter of recommendation is required, and applications for most internships are due
